GE & E.ON Sign O&M Deal for U.S. Wind Turbines

GE and E.ON Climate & Renewables (EC&R) North America have signed a seven-year operation and maintenance (O&M) agreement covering EC&R’s complete fleet of 529 GE wind turbines installed in the United States. The O&M deal is one of the largest wind services agreements ever signed by GE.

Under the agreement, GE will provide 24/7 remote monitoring and diagnostics from its Schenectady, New York-based Renewable Operations Center. These will include flow and capital parts support as well as complete site services for all GE 1.5-megawatt (MW) wind turbines installed at five EC&R project sites.

The agreement is designed to maximize turbine availability and energy production across EC&R’s U.S. installed base of GE wind turbines.

These site include 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 O&M contract includes an availability guarantee, ensuring 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,” said 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.”
