The first offshore wind farm of USA will use 3.6MW wind turbines supplied by Siemens.

Siemens will also provide an offshore Electric Service Platform (ESP) and a service agreement for the first 15 years of commercial operations of the facility.

"This is a significant milestone for this project and we're excited about it," reportedly said Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. "Massachusetts will be a pioneer in the emerging offshore wind industry, which brings with it both clean energy and good jobs."

 Cape Wind will consist of 130 wind turbines with a collective capacity of 468 megawatts located on Horseshoe Shoal in Nantucket Sound.

The turbines to be used are considered Siemens' workhorse of the offshore wind sector. Already in extensive use throughout the world, the 3.6MW turbine is also being implemented in at least eight other offshore wind farms currently under construction or approaching construction.
