Siemens has signed 15-year contract extensions with RES Americas to continue providing service and maintenance at two wind projects in North America.
Siemens will provide long-term service for the 26 SWT-2.3-93 wind turbines operating at RES Americas' Whirlwind Energy Center and for the 72 SWT-2.3-93 units in operation at RES Americas' Hackberry Wind Farm. Both projects are located in Texas and have a combined output of 226 MW.
Siemens currently has an existing five-year agreement with RES Americas for both sites. Under the new agreements, Siemens will provide 15 additional years of service, maintenance and warranty, along with an availability guarantee.
The deal includes an Advanced Grid Performance (AGP) upgrade at both sites. Siemens says the AGP upgrade comprises a series of tailored solutions that enable the wind park operator to comply with evolving grid requirements.
