May 2 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine servicing company Deutsche Windtechnik AG said on Monday it has secured a contract to deliver maintenance services for a 7.2-MW wind farm in Scotland.

The Forss wind park in Caithness, in the Highland council area of Scotland, is owned by Renewables Infrastructure Group Ltd (LON:TRIG), or TRIG, and managed by UK-based Renewable Energy Systems Ltd (RES). The plant consists of six Siemens SWT-1.3-62 turbines, which were installed in two separate phases. 

Under the deal, Deutsche Windtechnik will maintain the six-turbine plant starting in July 2018. The company did not provide the value of the contract, which was awarded by RES. It will deliver the services through its UK subsidiary, it said.

The first two turbines of the Forss wind farm became operational in 2003, while the other four Siemens machines started generating power since 2007.
