Massive Scottish wind farm uses Siemens turbines

21 July 2010

SSE Renewables (SSER) says its new Scottish wind farm will generate power for 80,000 homes. The development and construction company has ordered 68 wind turbines from Siemens and expects to complete the 156 MW plant by 2012.

The Griffin wind power farm is located approximately 19 miles northwest of Perth in the Scottish Highlands.

Of the 68 turbines, 61 will have a 101m rotor and 7 will have a 93m rotor. Siemens will also provide services for turbine operation and maintenance for an initial period of five years.

Jens-Peter Saul, CEO of Siemens Wind Power globally, said: “The Griffin wind power farm will yield significant benefits for Scotland in terms of jobs and local value creation.” It is claimed the project will provide over 100 jobs during the construction phase.
