Falck Renewables renews service contract with Nordex for 159 turbines

Italian energy project developer Falck Renewables has extended its service contracts with wind turbine manufacturer Nordex Group for 14 of its windfarms in Europe.

Italian energy project developer Falck Renewables has extended its service contracts with wind turbine manufacturer Nordex Group for 14 of its windfarms in Europe.

The service contract has been expanded for a five-year period that will cover the entire 384MW Falck Renewables Nordex portfolio.

This approach provides additional production security for the windfarms and allows the Nordex Group to plan plant maintenance.

Falck Renewables CEO Toni Volpe said: “This historical agreement is a fundamental milestone to reach our windfarms availability and O&M cost targets, which are a key component of our industrial plan.

“We are convinced that the original manufacturer knows best about its turbines and gets the most out of them.”

“We are very pleased that Nordex Group, a world’s leading wind turbine manufacturer and Service provider, was willing to negotiate a new innovative and convenient frame agreement for all our Nordex turbines that adds substance to a long-standing and successful partnership with Falck Renewables.”

Under the maintenance contract, Nordex will service 159 turbines of the 2MW to 2.5MW capacities, which were installed in Great Britain, France and Italy between 2007 and 2016.
