Siemens has received a 32.1 MW order from Spanish wind developer Cobra Energia for the supply, delivery and commissioning of 11 wind turbines at a project in Peru. Siemens notes that this deal marks the company's first wind turbine order in the country.

The wind project will consist of eight 3 MW direct-drive SWT-3.0-108 wind turbines and three 2.3 MW geared SWT-2.3-108 units. All of the blades and three of the geared nacelles will be produced at Siemens' U.S. plants.

The wind farm is expected to go online in March 2014. Siemens will also provide service and maintenance for seven years.
