Siemens announces that it will supply 21 wind turbines to NJR Clean Energy Ventures (NJRCEV), a subsidiary of New Jersey Resources (NJR), for the 48-MW Alexander wind farm, located in Kansas. A service and maintenance agreement was also signed to help ensure the turbines operate at optimal levels. NJRCEV is responsible for constructing, owning and operating the wind farm. The Alexander wind farm is expected to be in operation in the fall of 2015.
The project’s 21 SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines are part of Siemens G2 platform of onshore geared products – the bestselling wind turbine of Siemens installed portfolio in the Americas with rotor diameters optimized for all wind conditions. The G2 platform features highly-engineered, designed and manufactured components, exceptional reliability, intelligence and low operational costs for an optimized return on investment.
The nacelles for this project will be assembled at the Siemens nearby facility in Hutchinson, Kansas, and the blades will be manufactured at the Siemens blade facility in Fort Madison, Iowa.
