Siemens has been awarded a contract for the turbine supply of the Zadar VI Extension onshore wind project in Croatia. The project scope includes delivery and installation of 13 SWT-3.4-108 wind turbines with a rating of 3.4 MW each and a 108-meter rotor. The turbines will be installed on steel towers with hub heights of 79.5 meters.
Deliveries are planned for the first half of 2017. After commissioning in summer 2017, the wind farm will have total installed capacity of 44.2 MW. The deal includes a long-term service agreement for 14 years.
The direct drive onshore wind turbines represent a combination of large rotor and robust design optimized for the moderate to high wind speeds at the project site in the Lika region, which is exposed to north-west winds from the mountains. Equipped with the latest version of the Siemens NetConverter system, they offer flexibility in the turbine’s response to voltage and frequency control.
