Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has won a 30-year contract to provide operation and maintenance services for the 226-MW Murra Warra wind farm, consisting of 61 Senvion turbines in Victoria, Australia.
The project features Senvion’s most advanced onshore turbines powered at 3.7 MW with a 144-meter rotor, generating enough electricity to meet the demands of 420,000 Victorian households.
Siemens Gamesa has assumed responsibilities for servicing both the wind turbines and the electrical balance of the plant for a term of 30 years, which will ensure turbine performance and maximize the operational lifetime of the assets.
Siemens Gamesa earlier won a 20-year, operation and maintenance services for a 135-MW wind project also in Victoria. Siemens Gamesa is the largest service provider of Senvion turbines in the Asia Pacific region.
Siemens Gamesa acquired Senvion’s Onshore European service assets and Intellectual Property (IP) in early January 2020, which has expanded the company’s service portfolio to more than 10 GW globally.
Siemens Gamesa, which has nearly 72 GW under service globally, has installed more than 8.4 GW of onshore turbines in the Asia Pacific region.
