Siemens Energy and E.ON have signed a wind power deal for projects in the U.S. and Europe. The two German companies agreed that Siemens will supply 500 wind turbines with a total capacity of 1,150 MW to E.ON for these projects. The wind turbines will be delivered and installed in 2010 and 2011.

"This agreement with E.ON is the largest single wind power deal Siemens has ever signed in its history," says Rene Umlauft, CEO of Siemens Energy Sector's renewable energy division. "The new partnership between E.ON and Siemens is not only to the great benefit of the two companies; the cooperation also marks an important step in the remarkable evolution of wind power as a mainstream energy source."

The reservation agreement between Siemens and E.ON covers the delivery of 500 wind turbines with a capacity of 2.3 MW each. The machines will feature various combinations of tower heights and rotor diameters. Six hundred MW of wind power capacity is reserved for U.S. projects, and 550 MW will be installed in wind farms across Europe. E.ON will place individual orders with Siemens for each project on the terms stated in the framework agreement.

The parties will work together to improve turbine efficiency and reduce maintenance costs through a well-defined program of work and mutually agreed performance measures as part of the agreement.
