The renewable energy unit of US conglomerate General Electric Co (NYSE:GE) has won a contract to provide maintenance services for a 54-MW wind farm in Germany.
GE Renewable Energy was awarded the contract by Dortmunder Energie-und Wasserversorgung (DEW21), part of municipal utility of Dortmund and has a nine-year term, GE said on Thursday. The full maintenance deal is for the 36-turbine Alsleben wind park and includes the implementation of remote monitoring, regular and preventive maintenance services, as well as equipment replacement, when necessary.
The Alsleben plant is situated in the landlocked state of Saxony-Anhalt. It uses 36 units of GE’s 1.5sl turbines.
GE, which in September unveiled a 4.8-MW turbine for the onshore wind segment, noted that it has secured the contract following a tender held by DEW21 in the framework of a European procurement procedure.
