Siemens has signed new long-term service and maintenance agreements for two wind projects near Roosevelt, Wash.
Siemens has been servicing the SWT-2.3-93 turbines at the 205 MW White Creek and neighboring 99 MW Harvest Wind projects since the wind farms came online in 2007 and 2009, respectively. This new deal with Seattle-based Summit Power Group includes an additional 15 years of service and maintenance. The contracts cover the 43 turbines operating at Harvest Wind and the 89 units at White Creek.
"As the wind energy industry in the U.S. continues to mature, it's important that we work closely with our customers to help maintain the continued reliability, availability and economic efficiency of their units over the long term," says Randy Zwirn, president and CEO of Siemens Power Generation Services.
Siemens says it currently provides service and maintenance for more than 3,100 installed wind turbines in the Americas region and more than 7,600 globally, with a combined generating capacity of approximately 18 GW.
