Siemens says it has received a turnkey order for the Netherlands' largest near-shore wind farm. The 144 MW Westermeerwind project is to be erected in the IJsselmeer lake along the northern and western dike of the Dutch municipality of Noordoostpolder.

Siemens will provide 48 of its SWT-3.0-108 wind turbines, which will be arranged in three rows in the shallow waters between 500 and 1,100 meters from the dike. Each of these direct-drive turbines will generate an output of 3 MW and feature a 108-meter rotor diameter.

Preparation work on-site will start this summer, followed by offshore installation in 2015. Commissioning is slated for completion by early 2016, and Siemens also has a 15-year maintenance contract for the turbines.
