Siemens awarded order for 150-MW wind power project in Canada

67 wind turbines for Grand Renewable Wind Project in Ontario ---- Output of 2.3 megawatts (MW) each, rotor diameter of 101 meters

Siemens Canada has received an order from Samsung Renewable Energy, Inc. (Samsung) and Pattern Energy Group LP (Pattern Development) for the Grand Renewable Wind Project. Located in the County of Haldimand in southern Ontario, the Grand Renewable Energy Park will consist of 100 MW of solar power and 150 MW of wind power. Under the agreement, Siemens will supply, deliver and commission 67 units of its SWT-2.3-101 wind turbines. The deal also includes a three-year service and maintenance agreement.


As part of the commitment to the green energy economy in the Province of Ontario, the wind turbine blades for the project will be manufactured at the Siemens facility in Tillsonburg, Ontario, and towers and steel for the turbines will be sourced from local suppliers as well. The nacelles will be supplied by the Company's nacelle assembly plant in Hutchinson, Kansas, USA. Commercial operation at the Grand Renewable Energy Park is expected to begin by fall of next year.

The Grand Renewable Wind Project is the second Samsung and Pattern Development project in Ontario under the Green Energy Investment Agreement for which Siemens has been selected to supply and commission wind turbines. Earlier this year, Siemens was awarded a 270-MW order for the South Kent Wind project in Chatham-Kent. Turbine blades for that project began shipping to the site in July 2013, with the start of project operation expected for spring 2014.

Wind power and energy service are part of Siemens' Environmental Portfolio. In fiscal 2012, revenue from the Portfolio totaled about 33 billion, making Siemens one of the world's largest suppliers of ecofriendly technologies. In the same period, our products and solutions enabled customers to reduce their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by more than 330 million tons, an amount equal to the total annual CO2 emissions of Berlin, Delhi, Hong Kong, Istanbul, London, New York, Singapore and Tokyo.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
