Siemens receives onshore wind power orders from Europe and South Africa

Order volume of more than EUR880 million

Erlangen (Germany), November 21, 2012. 
Siemens Energy has secured the order for the Jeffrey’s Bay wind power plant with a
capacity of 138 megawatts (MW). This marks the company’s market entry into the South
African wind power sector. Siemens has now received a total of 16 orders for more than 270
onshore wind turbines from Europe and South Africa since July 2012. The total capacity of
these projects of 730 MW is sufficient to supply 730,000 households with ecofriendly
electricity, with 560 MW of this total booked in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. The total
volume of this order for supply, installation and service is more than EUR880 million.

”Electricity produced from wind power will make a significant contribution worldwide to ecofriendly
power supply in the future,” states Felix Ferlemann, CEO of the Wind Power Division of Siemens
Energy. “The orders from Europe and our market entry in South Africa clearly demonstrate that we
are continuing along the right path, also with our onshore business.” Siemens will supply and install
wind turbines, and provide service and maintenance, for three wind farms each in UK, Denmark
and Sweden, for two projects each in Turkey and Croatia and for one project each in Macedonia,
Poland and South Africa.

Renewable energy sources are also gaining momentum in South Africa. The South African
government plans on the construction of additional projects for a total capacity of 20,000 MW of
power generation from renewable energy sources by 2030, Siemens has now won the order for
Jeffrey’s Bay for delivery of 60 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 2.3 MW and a rotor diameter
of 101 meters. Siemens will also service the wind turbines over an initial period of ten years.
Purchaser is a consortium consisting of Mainstream Renewable Power Ltd., its investment partner
Globeleq, Thebe Investment Corporation and the local engineering firms Enzani Technologies and
Usizo Engineering.

Wind power is part of Siemens’ Environmental Portfolio. In fiscal 2011, revenue from the Portfolio
totaled about €30 billion, making Siemens one of the world’s largest suppliers of ecofriendly
technologies. In the same period, our products and solutions enabled customers to reduce their
carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by nearly 320 million tons, an amount equal to the total annual
CO2 emissions of Berlin, Delhi, Hong Kong, Istanbul, London, New York, Singapore and Tokyo.
