Siemens has concluded a framework agreement with Enel Green Power for the supply of up to 260 wind power turbines for various wind farms in Europe. The total capacity of the onshore turbines is 600 megawatts, sufficient to supply more than 350,000 European households with clean wind power.
The agreement with the subsidiary of the Italian utility Enel S.p.A. provides for delivery of the turbines between 2011 and 2014 and includes an option for delivery of a further 600 megawatts of wind power turbines. Maintenance of the turbines is also part of the agreement.
“Siemens is already market leader for offshore wind power. Through this agreement with Enel Green Power we are closer to our goal of being one of the top three suppliers in the overall market for wind power by 2012,” said René Umlauft, CEO of the Renewable Energy Division in Siemens’ Energy Sector. The wind power turbines are required by Enel Green Power for wind farms in Italy, France, on the Iberian Peninsula and in Greece, Romania and Bulgaria.
