Cape Wind And Siemens Sign Major Offshore Wind Turbine Supply Agreement

Siemens and Cape Wind have signed a major contract in which Siemens will supply Cape Wind its industry-leading 3.6-megawatt (MW) offshore wind turbines, an offshore Electric Service Platform (ESP) and a service agreement for the first 15 years of commercial operations.

“As the global leader in offshore wind power, Siemens is extremely pleased to be the supplier for America’s first-ever offshore wind farm,” stated Randy Zwirn, president and CEO of Siemens Energy, Inc. “We look forward to providing our world-class technology, global project experience and industry knowledge to this landmark project.”

Siemens, the world’s leading offshore wind turbine manufacturer, will fabricate, install and commission its 3.6-MW offshore wind turbines for Cape Wind. The Siemens 3.6-MW offshore turbine has been the ‘workhorse’ of the global offshore wind industry and has had an unparalleled track record on performance and reliability. It has been the leading turbine used at existing offshore wind farms and it is going to be used in at least eight other offshore wind farms currently under construction or approaching construction.

Jim Gordon, President of Cape Wind said, "The completion and execution of the contracts between Cape Wind and Siemens brings the experience and financial strength of the leading global offshore wind supplier into America's first offshore wind farm ensuring important energy, environmental and economic benefits for Massachusetts and the region."

Siemens is also providing Cape Wind with a long-term maintenance program for the wind turbines and ESP for a period of 15 years. Siemens will hire locally to fill the majority of its operations and maintenance positions at Cape Wind’s future service headquarters on Falmouth Harbor on Cape Cod.

Siemens Energy has a strong presence in the U.S. with approximately 60,000 employees and hundreds of millions of dollars invested in manufacturing, service and office locations. Siemens opened its North American Offshore Wind Office in Boston in 2010 to be closer to its U.S. and Canadian customers, and specifically to work with Cape Wind. Project management for the Cape Wind project will be managed from the Boston office, while the ESP scope of work will be managed from the Company’s Transmission operations in Cary, North Carolina, and the long-term maintenance program will be managed from the company’s Americas headquarters located in Orlando, Florida.
