Siemens Canada expanded its wind power footprint, in partnership with Algonquin Power & Utilities, to supply, deliver and commission ten direct drive SWT-2.3-113 wind turbines for the Morse Project. The 23-MW project will be located in southern Saskatchewan near Morse, 60 km from Swift Current. The technology of the SWT-2.3-113 benefits from the experiences of 250 gearless Siemens wind turbines in operation. Construction of the wind farm is expected to begin in summer 2014, with commercial operation expected by early next year. The deal includes a 10-year service and maintenance agreement, ensuring the reliability, availability and performance of the turbines.
