Gamesa Technology Corp. Inc. has secured a 10-year, full-service operations and maintenance (O&M) agreement with NedPower for its 264 MW Mount Storm Wind Farm, located in West Virginia's eastern panhandle.

The companies did not disclose the value of the contract.

The wind farm, located about 120 miles west of Washington, D.C., in Grant County, W.Va., features 132 Gamesa G80 2.0 MW turbines. Gamesa has been providing O&M services under a five-year services agreement that went into effect when the project became operational in 2008. That O&M agreement ends June 30, 2013, and the new 10-year full-service agreement takes effect July 1, 2013.

The contract features the Gamesa Premium Availability program, which includes a full range of turbine platform upgrades, such as operational and software improvements to small correctives, logistics optimization for large correctives, and preventive maintenance solutions.
