GE and E.ON Climate & Renewables sign 7-year O&M wind turbine agreement

GE and E.ON Climate & Renewables North America have signed a 7-year operation and maintenance (O&M) agreement covering E.ON Climate & Renewable’s complete fleet of 529 GE wind turbines installed in the United States.

Under the wind turbine O&M agreement, GE will provide 24/7 remote monitoring and diagnostics from GE Power & Water’s Schenectady, New York based Renewable Operations Center; flow and capital parts support; as well as complete site services for all GE 1.5 MW wind turbines installed at five E.ON Climate & Renewables project sites: the Pyron phase of Roscoe, Panther Creek I & II and Panther Creek III in Texas, Munnsville in New York and Stony Creek in Pennsylvania.

The wind turbine O&M contract includes an availability guarantee, ensuring wind turbine performance.

“By teaming with GE on this comprehensive agreement, we will have greater capability to control our O&M costs over the long term, which will help us cut our total operating costs,” says Steve Trenholm, CEO of E.ON Climate & Renewables North America. “In addition, the agreement ensures that our wind turbines will continue to operate at high availability and overall energy production.”

A single point of availability across E.ON’s fleet of 529 GE wind turbines can equate to more than 25 GWh of additional energy produced annually.
