Vestas inks five-year service agreement for 63MW Kettles Hill Wind Farm

Danish wind turbines manufacturer Vestas has inked a five year service agreement with ENMAX Energy Corporation of Canada.

As per the agreed terms, Vestas will provide maintenance and servicing for the 63MW Kettles Hill Wind Farm under the active output management mode (AOM).

“AOM 5000 creates business value for Vestas’ customers through precise weather forecasting and VestasOnline software that can remotely control and monitor the turbines to predict potential wear-and-tear issues.

“This allows Vestas to plan maintenance so the turbines are operational for the maximum amount of time.” said the company in a statement.

The 63MW wind farm in Alberta features 35 V80-1.8 MW wind turbines supplied by the Danish turbine manufacturer.

ENMAX Energy operations vice president Bert Adam added, “This agreement provides for improved flexibility and alignment on performance objectives to help ensure reliability and profitability with this facility.”

Vestas, meanwhile, is hopeful of securing $1.3bn in gross service revenues for the 2013 fiscal.
