Siemens Wind Power has received an order to supply 17 direct drive wind turbines for the Uljin onshore wind power plant in Gyeongsangbuk province on the east coast of South Korea. The customer is SK D&D Co., Ltd., a Korean developer of real estate and renewable energy projects.

The scope of supply includes the delivery and technical field assistance for the installation of 16 wind turbines of the new type SWT-3.6-130 on different towers ranging from 85 – 115 meter hub heights and one SWT-3.0-108 on a 71 meter tower. Siemens was also contracted for full service and maintenance over a period of 10 years including Siemens' advanced remote monitoring and diagnostics services.

The Uljin wind farm project is Siemens' second project for SK D&D and also its second order in South Korea. In 2014 both companies successfully completed the 30 MW Gasiri Wind Farm close to the city of Gasiri in the province of Jeju-do. Due to site conditions in the coastal mountains of the Gyeongsangbuk Province the new Uljin project will feature two different turbine types and four different hub heights.

Besides one SWT-3.0-108 wind turbine with a 108 meter rotor and rated at 3 megawatts (MW), 16 of the turbines will be the latest Siemens onshore model SWT-3.6-130. This IEC class II turbine is designed for medium wind sites and delivers 3.6 MW of electric power. Installation will start in spring 2018, commissioning is targeted for later 2018. Once in operation the wind power plant will supply green energy to approximately 35,000 households.

"We are proud that SK D&D decided to partner with us again for their second wind project in South Korea", says Thomas Richterich, CEO Onshore at Siemens Wind Power. "Uljin wind farm is a very important project for us since it marks the premiere of our latest generation of direct drive turbines in the Korean wind market."
