Siemens will provide five SWT-3.0-113 direct-drive wind turbines for the Kniphagen wind farm, located in Ostholstein, Germany.

The 15 MW project is slated to be connected to the grid this year and represents the first time Siemens' direct-drive machines will be installed in the region. In addition, Siemens has entered a 20-year service and maintenance contract.

"Projects such as Kniphagen are proof that our modern direct-drive wind turbines can be the first choice not only for large onshore wind projects, but also for smaller projects," says Markus Tacke, CEO of Siemens Wind Power.
