Siemens Energy has received an order to deliver and service 42 direct-drive wind turbines for two onshore wind farms in Ireland for utility Bord na Mona.

The order encompasses 28 SWT-3.0-101 direct-drive wind turbines for the Mount Lucas wind farm, located approximately 80 km west of Dublin, and 14 SWT-3.0-101 direct-drive wind turbines for the Bruckana wind farm, located about 120 km southwest of Dublin.

This is Siemens' first order for its direct-drive wind turbines in Ireland. Siemens will supply, install and commission the turbines, and will also provide service for the plants over a period of 15 years.

The two wind projects have a combined capacity of 126 MW, and the turbines are scheduled to begin feeding power into the grid by mid-2014.
