LONDON (Bloomberg) — Siemens AG won an order from Airtricity, the renewable energy division of Scottish and Southern Energy Plc, for 80 offshore wind turbines to be used in the North Sea, Siemens said

The

3.6-megawatt turbines will give the Butendiek wind project a capacity

of 288 megawatts, Siemens said yesterday in an e- mailed statement. The

order is worth more than 400 million euros ($560 million), a person

with knowledge of the order said. The person declined to be identified

because financial details of the contract haven’t been disclosed.

Siemens says it aims to become by 2012 one of the top three global

suppliers of wind power, a market it expects to grow by about 17

percent a year.

The

Munich-based company ranks sixth in installed megawatts of wind-power

equipment, behind Vestas Wind Systems A/S of Denmark, GE Wind Energy,

Gamesa Corporacion Tecnologica, SA of Spain, German rival Enercon GmbH

and Suzlon Energy Ltd. of India.

It’s No. 1 for offshore wind turbines.
