Siemens Canada has received an order from Samsung Renewable Energy Inc. and Pattern Energy Group LP for the Grand Renewable wind project, which is part of the Grand Renewable Energy Park. Located in the county of Haldimand in southern Ontario, the Energy Park will consist of 100 MW of solar power and 150 MW of wind power.

Under the agreement, Siemens will supply, deliver and commission 67 units of its SWT-2.3-101 wind turbines. The deal also includes a three-year service and maintenance agreement.

Siemens notes the wind turbine blades for the project will be manufactured at its facility in Tillsonburg, Ontario, and towers and steel for the turbines will be sourced from local suppliers. Meanwhile, the nacelles will be supplied by the company's nacelle assembly plant in Hutchinson, Kan.

Commercial operation at the Grand Renewable Energy Park is expected to begin by fall of next year.

The Grand Renewable wind project is the second Samsung and Pattern project in Ontario under the Green Energy Investment Agreement for which Siemens has been selected to supply and commission wind turbines. Earlier this year, Siemens was awarded a 270 MW order for the South Kent Wind project in Chatham-Kent. Turbine blades for that project began shipping to the site in July, with the start of project operation expected for spring 2014.
