windfarm sustainabilitySiemens has received two contracts for the supply of wind turbines for two projects located in Ireland.

Under the first contract, Siemens will supply and install 36 Siemens D3 direct drive turbines at the 108MW Cloosh Valley wind farm, which is also known as Galway Wind Park Phase 2.

The Cloosh project is being developed as part of SSE Renewables’ effort to build a wind farm cluster in Cloosh Valley, near Rosscahill, County Galway.

Construction of the first phase of Galway Wind Park is currently underway.

The two phases are expected to generate clean energy required to power around 84,000 households.

Additionally, Siemens will supply 20 SWT-3.2-101 wind turbines for the 64MW Sliabh Bawn wind farm located in county Roscommon, as part of the second contract.

Planned to be built in Sliabh Bawn mountain, south east of Strokestown, the Sliabh Bawn wind project is designed to generate electricity to power approximately 41,000 households.

The scope of the two contracts also include 15-year service agreements, including Siemens’ advanced remote diagnostics, to help ensure the long-term reliability, performance and availability of the wind turbines.

Siemens wind power and renewables division onshore CEO Thomas Richterich said: “With 2,400 MW of installed capacity, wind energy in the Republic of Ireland is not only a growing sector but also an industry creating jobs and benefiting communities.

“In this context the projects with our customers SSE Renewables, Bord na Mona and Coillte are of special significance to us.”

Siemens said that the Cloosh Valley and Sliabh Bawn wind farms, which are planned to be commissioned in mid-2017 and early 2017 respectively, are expected to contribute to the Irish Government’s renewable targets.
