Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has secured its first full-scope contract for the service of turbines supplied by other Original Equipment Manufacturers (oOEM) in Poland with Polenergia. Starting in April 2019, SGRE will provide service and maintenance for the 34-MW Lukaszow and 24-MW Modlikowice wind farms in western Poland. The contract includes full-scope service including availability and component warranty for 29 Vestas V90 wind turbines.
The two wind farms have been under service by another company for the last seven years. The new contract with Siemens Gamesa will cover the operations and maintenance for the next 23 years, guaranteeing 30 years of lifetime for the turbines and underlining the confidence in SGRE’s multi-brand service offering.
