EDF Renewable lands 75-MW wind O&M deal in Michigan
Jun 12, 2014 - US-based EDF Renewable Services said yesterday it has won an order to operate and maintain (O&M) US utility DTE Energy’s (NYSE:DTE) 75-MW Brookfield wind farm in Michigan.
Financial details were not provided. The multiyear contract calls for the delivery of specific O&M services for the turbines, as well as balance of plant, project oversight and remote monitoring.
The Brookfield wind park in Huron County comprises 44 turbines of 1.7 MW each, made by General Electric (NYSE:GE). DTE purchased the facility earlier this month from a unit of NextEra Energy Resources LLC. The plant is part of a 150-MW complex that also includes the 75-MW Pheasant Run I wind farm, which is still owned and operated by NextEra.
EDF Renewable Services is a unit of EDF Renewable Energy, which in turn is part of French utility EDF SA (EPA:EDF). Together with the Brookfield park, the company has 400 MW of DTE Energy wind farms under management.
According to the press release, EDF Renewable Services provides O&M services to over 7.4 GW of renewable assets in North America.
