Under the contract, Siemens will supply 47 wind turbines for the three projects, which will generate clean electricity for 50,000 households in South and North Ayrshire and Lockerbie.

Siemens will construct, install and commission 23 units of its D3 direct drive wind turbines for the Dersalloch wind farm, being developed by ScottishPower Renewables in the South Ayrshire region.

The delivery of the turbines for the Dersalloch wind farm is scheduled in 2016.

Siemens will supply six SWT-2.3-93 wind turbines to the Ewe Hill Phase 1, located 15 kilometers from Lockerbie in Dumfries and Galloway. Another 16 turbines of the same model will be installed for Phase 2.

The installation of the turbines for Phase 1 is scheduled for spring 2016, followed by Phase 2 installation in autumn 2016.

Siemens will supply two SWT-3.2-101 turbines for Millour Hill Community Wind in North Ayrshire where already six 3.0MW-rated wind turbines were installed.

Siemens' wind power and renewables division onshore CEO Thomas Richterich said: "We are delighted to continue our partnership with ScottishPower Renewables and Community Windpower Limited.

"With their combined rating of 126 MW these three projects will provide reliable, clean energy for the region - equivalent to the demand of both Scotland's Orkney and Shetland Islands."
