Siemens has secured a 36 MW order for a community wind project in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

The company will supply 12 direct-drive turbines to the Suderlugum wind farm: 11 model SWT-3.0-113 machines and one model SWT-3.0-101 machine. Installation is scheduled for late 2014, and Siemens has also entered a 20-year operations and maintenance deal for the project.

According to Siemens, its Reactive Power at No Wind technology will also help Suderlugum take advantage of renewable energy sources during calm weather. This option enables the wind turbines to stabilize the alternating current power grid when no wind is blowing by producing reactive power and feeding it into the grid. The company says this reduces operating costs for the regional power supply grid while doing away with the need for phase shifters.
