January 16 (Renewables Now) - Deutsche Windtechnik AG has secured a contract to provide full maintenance services for six Vestas V112 turbines, including large components, at the 18-MW Bokel-Ellerdorf Part 3 onshore wind farm in Germany.

The German wind turbine servicing company will take over the job from the turbines’ manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems A/S, starting February 2020, according to a press release on Thursday.

Deutsche Windtechnik cited “flexible cost structuring and efficient logistics” as some of the reasons for being awarded the contract. It said it was able to offer a more than 15% discount for its services, adding that its maintenance base is located in the vicinity of the wind farm.

The Bokel-Ellerdorf Part 3 wind farm was developed by German firm Wpd AG. Located in the state of Schleswig-Holstein, the plant was commissioned in 2013.
