Siemens 'preferred supplier' on 400MW offshore project

CANADA: NaiKun Wind Energy Group has appointed Siemens as preferred turbine supplier for a 400MW offshore project in British Columbia (BC), Canada.

The companies have agreed to "exclusively explore the opportunities for a joint execution" of the project. It would be located in the Hecate Strait between BC’s northern coastline and the Haida Gwaii archipelago.

NaiKun CEO Michael O’Connor says Siemens will assist in advancing the project, using its expertise to analyse data and optimise the wind farm design around the new Siemens 4MW turbine.

Whether Siemens' involvement goes beyond that of turbine supplier remains to be seen. "It is too early to say right now. We would be really happy if we get to the point where everybody sees the project is going to proceed and they are interested in taking on some of that role," says O'Connor.
