Renewable Energy Trust (RET) Capital has enlisted Vestas to provide maintenance and services for its newly purchased 102 MW Coram Wind Project, located in Tehachapi, Calif.Â
In addition to a five-year service agreement, the deal also covers maintenance of balance-of-plant electrical equipment, wildlife and vegetation management, care of meteorological equipment, road and fencing maintenance, and other tasks. Vestas will also serve as RET Capital's on-site asset manager, with responsibility for 24/7 surveillance, reporting to power purchaser Pacific Gas & Electric, responding to curtailment requests and managing the entire physical asset.
On July 2, RET Capital purchased the wind farm, powered by 34 Vestas V90-3.0 MW turbines, from BAIF U.S. Renewable Power Holdings LLC. Simultaneous with taking possession of the project, RET Capital engaged Vestas as ‘service provider plus’ for the facility.
