Siemens has received two orders for onshore wind projects in Ireland. With 36 Siemens D3 direct drive wind turbines, the Cloosh Valley Wind Farm – also known as Galway Wind Park Phase 2 – will add 108 megawatts (MW) to Ireland’s renewable energy capacity. A second order includes 20 SWT-3.2-101 wind turbines for the Irish Sliabh Bawn Wind Farm in County Roscommon. Commissioning of the Cloosh project is scheduled for mid-2017; Sliabh Bawn for early 2017.
