Siemens has signed a 15-year contract extension for service and maintenance at the 152 MW Keenan II wind farm in Oklahoma.
The contract, which will add balance-of-plant (BOP) work, marks the first long-term BOP wind service agreement in the U.S. for Siemens. The customer is CPV Keenan II Renewable Energy Co., headquartered in Silver Spring, Md.
The Keenan II wind farm, which went into commercial operations in December 2010, has a 20-year power purchase agreement with Oklahoma Gas & Electric Co. Siemens has been providing service and maintenance on the 66 SWT-2.3-101 wind turbines since the project began operations. In 2012, Siemens opened a 64,000-square-foot wind service distribution center in nearby Woodward, Okla.
Through the new contract extension, Siemens will provide an additional 15 years of service and maintenance for the turbines.
The work, including advanced remote monitoring and diagnostics services, will be supported by Siemens Digital Services. Select data-driven services will use Sinalytics, the platform architecture and technology foundation for Siemens Digital Services.
