Siemens is going to build three new wind farms in Ireland and Scotland.

Together they are expected to supply enough energy for nearly 100,000 households.

The three wind farms include Raheenleagh in County Wicklow, Aikengall 2 in the south east of Edinburgh and Galway Wind Park near the city of Galway.

The 35MW Raheenleagh wind farm will have 11 wind turbines and is scheduled to begin construction in May 2016. The Aikengall 2 project will consist of 19 turbines and a planned installation date of early summer 2016.

The 64MW Galway Wind Park Phase 1 will have 22 turbines and is expected to begin early 2017.

All the orders include long-term service contracts ranging from five years for Galway Phase 1 to 10 years for Raheenleagh and a 20-year service contract for Aikengall 2.

Thomas Richterich, CEO of Onshore, Siemens Wind Power and Renewables Division said: “We are proud to be selected to provide both the turbines and long-term service for these important new projects in Scotland and Ireland.”
