The first shipment of Siemens’ gigantic wind turbine components comprising of 36 pieces of SWT-2.3-101 blade for 12 wind turbines (3 blades for 1 turbine) ,12 pieces of nacelle and 12 pieces of hubs for Thailand’s largest wind power projects arrived safely at Laem Chabang seaport in Chonburi province last week.

Siemens Energy Sector has been awarded two major orders from Wind Energy Holding Co., Ltd. and its subsidiaries; K.R.Two Co., Ltd. and First Korat Wind Co., Ltd. for the supply of 90 wind turbines (SWT-2.3-101) with a capacity of 2.3 MW each to be installed at Thailand’s first major wind farms; Korat 1 and Korat 2 in Nakorn Ratchasima province. These two wind farm projects will have an installed combined capacity of 207MW (103MW each). The 2.3 MW state-of-the-art wind turbines were selected as the suitable technology and equipment which best match characteristics of the proposed project sites in Huay Bong Sub District, Dan Khun Tot District.

Siemens Energy’s scope includes supply of wind turbines, installation, supervision, commissioning, logistics, as well as a five-year service agreement.

In total, 90 wind turbines for two wind farm projects; Korat 1 (45 wind turbines) and Korat 2 (45 wind turbines) will arrive in the port of Leam Chabang between end of March and October 2012. The installation of both projects, considering as the first and the largest wind farm project in South East Asia, will begin in the second quarter of 2012, while commissioning of the plants are scheduled for the end of 2012 and early of 2013 respectively. They will provide over one GWH per annum of clean energy directly to Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT).

The Siemens SWT-2.3-101 wind turbine offering low cost energy production is designed to deliver unparalleled performance and reliability, making it ideally suitable for areas with low to medium wind speeds. With a rotor diameter of 101 meters, the wind turbine provides more energy at lower wind speeds, thus significantly increasing the return on investment of wind farms. It is a Siemens’ SWT 2.3 product family, which has proven availability that is among the highest in the industry.
