Siemens to supply 79 wind turbines for Pattern wind power in Texas

Siemens AG (SIE), Europe’s biggest engineering company, won a contract to supply 79 wind turbines for a 182-megawatt Pattern Energy Group Inc. wind power project in northern Texas.

Siemens will begin delivering the 2.3-megawatt wind turbines in March for the Panhandle 2 wind farm in Carson County and Pattern expects to complete it in November.

The blades will be built at Siemens’s factory in Fort Madison, Iowa, and the nacelles, the car-sized units that house the turbines’ machinery, at a Hutchinson, Kansas, plant. Terms weren’t disclosed.
