Multinational energy supplier EDL has contracted Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas for service to three Australian wind fields.
As per the terms of the contract, Vestas will service 23 Senvion turbines with a combined capacity of 47MW.
The turbines are located across the Coober Pedy site in South Australia, Cullerin Range in New South Wales and Wonthaggi in Victoria.
EDL CEO James Harman said: “EDL is pleased to appoint Vestas as our maintenance service provider for the Coober Pedy, Cullerin Range and Wonthaggi wind farms.
“We look forward to a safe and productive relationship with Vestas. They are an industry leader with experience in multi-brand service, and their wide-ranging geographic presence in Australia enables them to provide quality service teams adjacent to our wind assets.”
In a statement the company said all the agreements will commence immediately and will feature the Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service programme.
Vestas has in the past serviced Senvion platforms such as the MM82-2.05MW, MM92-2.05, 3.XM EBC and 3.XM NES.
Vestas’ service portfolio of Senvion turbines has now increased to 287MW in Australia and to more than 300MW across the Asia-Pacific region.
Vestas Asia-Pacific president Clive Turton said: “The multi-brand service deals with EDL demonstrate how Vestas can leverage our market experience, broad service solutions capability and extensive supply chain to provide value for our customers throughout the wind park lifecycle – whether that is servicing Vestas turbines or third party machines.
“We offer unmatched expertise to service more than 30 non-Vestas models and we are proud that customers all throughout our region can turn to Vestas’ broad range of industry-leading and cost-efficient service solutions.”
