October 17 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine servicing company Deutsche Windtechnik AG has won a contract for the maintenance of the turbines at the 200-MW Trianel Borkum II offshore wind project in the German North Sea.

The contract covers troubleshooting the 32 Senvion 6.3M 152 turbines, remote fault elimination, spare parts management and logistics from Borkum or Emden, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

The first of the turbines was installed in August and the whole wind park is expected to be commissioned by the end of the year, as stated at the time by German municipal utilities network Trianel GmbH.

Trianel holds a 37.99% stake in the EUR-800-million (USD 887m) project, while utility EWE AG owns 37.5%. The remaining interest of 24.51% is held by Zurich-based municipal utility Elektrizitaetswerk der Stadt Zuerich (EWZ) and its investment partner Fontavis.
