GE and E.ON Climate & Renewables (EC&R) North America have signed a seven-year operations and maintenance (O&M) agreement covering EC&R's complete fleet of 529 GE wind turbines installed in the U.S.
According to the companies, the agreement is designed to maximize turbine availability and energy production across EC&R's U.S. installed base of GE wind turbines. In addition, the agreement reflects GE and EC&R's shared goal of maintaining peak performance and reliability.
GE will provide 24/7 remote monitoring and diagnostics from GE's Schenectady, N.Y.-based renewable operations center; flow and capital parts support; as well as complete site services for all GE 1.5 MW wind turbines installed at five EC&R project sites: the Pyron phase of Roscoe; Panther Creek I, II and III in Texas; Munnsville in New York; and Stony Creek in Pennsylvania. The O&M contract includes an availability guarantee.
