Vestas has signed an agreement with Elemental Energy for a 10-year AOM 4000 service agreement renewal that covers the 27 MW Fermeuse wind power plant, located in Newfoundland, Canada. The project features nine V90-3.0 MW turbines and was commissioned in 2009. Vestas has conducted service on the site since installation.
‘We have been extremely pleased with the entire Vestas team and the overall performance of the wind plant,’ says Ron Hankewich, vice president of corporate development at Elemental Energy.
‘Our dedicated service team has worked hard to optimize the performance of the Fermeuse wind power plant," adds Chris Brown, president of Vestas' sales and service division in North America. "We have been able to tailor our service schedule to ensure planned maintenance on low-wind days, which contributes to a world-class lost production factor well below two percent. For a smaller, remote site, this is a significant achievement, of which we are very proud."
