Construction of two tooling and spare parts facilities is expected to be completed by the end of 2011. They will serve as a hub for wind energy main components and parts including wind turbine blades, drive assemblies and generators.
Siemens is involved in wind projects across Oklahoma. The company provided wind turbines for the University of Oklahoma’s Spirit wind farm, and CPV Renewable Energy Company’s Keenan I and II wind farms.
The company is also providing 95 SWT 2.3-101 wind turbines and three units of the SWT-3.0-101 direct drive turbines for Oklahoma Gas and Electric’s Crossroads wind farm in Dewey County in the west of the state.
