August 31 (SeeNews) - German engineering major Siemens AG (ETR:SIE) said on Monday it will supply five 3-MW turbines with protection against electromagnetic emissions for a community wind project in the northern state of Schleswig-Holstein.

The project developer, Buergerwindpark Loewenstedt GmbH & Co KG, has chosen Siemens’ SWT-3.0-113 machines in order to comply with stringent radio shielding requirements. The particular regulations were established because local air traffic control company Deutsche Flugsicherung (DFS) has a radio navigation station at the site of the wind project.

Siemens says that its SWT-3.0-113 direct-drive units are the only wind turbines offering the required protection against electromagnetic emissions.

The Loewenstedt community wind project currently has over 280 shareholders. Its five wind turbines will be erected within a radius of 2 km (1.2 miles) around the DFS receiver station.
