Siemens and Cobra Energia collaborate again in Peruvian wind market

Cobra Energia has awarded Germany’s Siemens Energy an order to expand its onshore wind power fleet in Peru by 97 MW, marking the second link-up between the two companies in this Latin American nation.

The contract includes a combination of 25 direct drive SWT-3.0-108 wind turbines and eight geared SWT-2.3-108 units, as well as a six-year service and maintenance programme.

The Tres Hermanas wind farm, which is slated to be commissioned in July 2015, is the second project for Siemens with Spanish wind developer Cobra Energia in Peru.

In September 2013, Cobra Energia purchased 11 Siemens wind turbines with a total capacity of 32.1 MWs for the Marcona wind project.

Tres Hermanas was awarded by the Peruvian government as part of the country’s second renewable energy tender.
