Siemens Wins World's Biggest Onshore Wind Power Order

First shipment of blades from Siemens' new wind turbine blade factory in Fort Madison/USA. Iowa is one of the leading U.S. states in wind energy generation. In 2012, around 24 percent of total power generation in the state was provided by wind power. Siemens has already installed 1.2 GW of wind power capacity for MidAmerican Energy to date.

Siemens won an order to supply 448 wind turbines with a total capacity of 1,050 megawatts (MW) to U.S.-based MidAmerican Energy, which the German engineering group said was the largest single order for onshore wind power ever awarded.

The wind turbines, with a nominal rating of 2.3 MW each and a rotor diameter of 108 meters, are to be installed in five different projects in Iowa, Siemens said in a statement on Monday.
