German wind turbine technology specialist Deutsche Windtechnik AG has landed two new full-service contracts for wind turbines in Spain with a total output of more than 400 MW in a push to further strengthen its position in the local market.
Under one of the deals, the company will provide maintenance services for 357 Gamesa wind turbines with a total capacity of 355 MW for a period of five years, Deutsche Windtechnik said on Wednesday. The turbines are installed at 12 wind parks.
The other contract includes full maintenance services for Vestas V90 turbines with a combined capacity of 54 MW.
Both contracts enhance Deutsche Windtechnik's position in the key areas of Aragon and Catalonia in northeastern Spain where the local headquarters of the German company is located.
To ensure the proper implementation of the two contracts, Deutsche Windtechnik has hired 30 technicians who will be responsible for the services.
This is the latest in a series of contracts won by the Bremen-based company this year -- its service portfolio was earlier expanded with 12 Nordex turbines in Finland and eight Siemens SWT 2,3 DD wind turbines at the Gunnarby wind farm in Sweden. In June, the firm secured four contracts to provide inspection and maintenance of the balance of plant (BOP) at four offshore wind farms in Dutch waters.
