Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) announced its agreement with Glennmont Partners for the renewal of the O&M service contract for its SGRE fleet in Italy.
The wind turbine services deal will include 236 wind turbines – 189 units of G52-850 kW, 9 G80-2.0 MW turbines, 33 units of G87-2.0 MW and 5 G90-2.0 MW turbines – with a total output capacity of 254.7 MW. These wind turbines are located in several wind farms in the south of Italy.
Siemens Gamesa said the renewal of the O&M agreement comprises new services and different upgrades, reducing the cost of energy and providing greater control over operation and maintenance costs.
Under the new wind turbine services contract, Siemens Gamesa will also operate these turbines and provide full scope maintenance services for ten years.
Siemens Gamesa has 2,219 MW installed in Italy and maintains 64 wind farms with a capacity of 1,667 MW, which accounts for a 75 percent of the total capacity installed.
SGRE’s Service business unit maintains nearly 57 GW (onshore and offshore) in 62 countries, said John Paul Larraneta, Service CEO of Siemens Gamesa’s Southern Europe and Africa region.
Glennmont Partners’ portfolio of renewable power plant constitutes nearly 1 GW of mixed generation technologies across Europe.
