Siemens will participate in the upcoming American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) WINDPOWER 2016 Conference & Exhibition in New Orleans (May 23 to 26), showcasing its comprehensive portfolio of products and services for the U.S. and North American wind industry.
Siemens is focused on bringing down the cost of energy (LCoE) and making wind energy competitive with other energy sources. Executives representing a range of the company’s wind power business units will participate in the conference. Siemens will be featuring a booth in the exhibit hall (Booth #4238), equipped with an X-pert Center and interactive applications that allow visitors to learn more about the company’s latest technology, service offerings, and financing solutions.

Siemens has 30 years of global experience in onshore wind projects and is one of the world’s leading suppliers of onshore wind power solutions. Nearly 6,000 Siemens wind turbines are installed in the United States, capable of producing clean, renewable power for more than 4.2 million households every day. Siemens also recently achieved the 14-GW installed capacity milestone in the Americas, with over 7,300 installed wind turbines.
Siemens is using technology innovation to drive down the cost of wind power and expand wind energy in the United States. Siemens recently announced the commercial launch of a concrete tower technology that is designed to capture winds at higher altitudes – resulting in more potential energy production and increased project revenue for customers. The company has also announced the launch of a new turbine designed for American needs, the SWT-2.3.-120, which represents the next step in the evolution of Siemens’ proven G2 product platform.
Siemens’ wind service business is taking full advantage of opportunities to re-invent routine maintenance through advances in data-driven digital services. The enormous amounts of data collected from Siemens’ global fleet enables the company’s experts to draw trends on individual turbines as well as the overall fleet. Experts can look to see how certain locations, operating conditions and length of service are impacting the turbines and make recommendations for unit-specific service based on this and other data. This also allows Siemens to feed insights gained from these advanced data analytics into the new unit and service development process to continuously improve turbine availability and reliability.
