Siemens turbines for Clyde Extension wind farm arrive on-site

Siemens turbines arrive at Clyde Extension wind farm siteFinal-stage road-deliveries of Siemens turbines for the SSE Clyde Extension wind farm in South Lanarkshire have begun.

All components for the 54-turbine parc, including turbine hubs, nacelle and other ancillary parts will be delivered by HGV throughout this week.

Clyde Wind Farm (Scotland) Ltd is owned by SSE, Greencoat UK Wind and GLIL. 

Meanwhile, Siemens chief executive Joe Kaeser has said that Siemens will continue to invest in the UK, despite earlier warnings that the vote for British Independence from the EU-bloc could affect its future activities in the country.

The giant conglomerate had also warned that its plans to export wind turbine blades from a new facility in Hull were being put on hold.

The £300-million manufacturing hub in the city will employ about 1,000 people and Kaeser said that this investment will continue and will be used to meet local demand.
