GE Renewable Energy signed an agreement with Spain’s Naturgy Energy Group to provide a 5-year full-service agreement for the La Rabia Wind Farm in Spain, the company announced in a statement on Friday.
The wind farm includes 13 Eco-80 turbines for which GE will provide full preventive and corrective maintenance tasks in addition to the 50 units of the same technology at Naturgy’s Pehimo Wind Farm, already under contract, according to the statement.
The agreement increases GE Renewable Energy’s servicing contracts with Naturgy to approximately 100 wind turbines.
“This deal represents the confidence that Naturgy has in GE Renewable Energy and the quality of our services offerings. We are delighted to welcome the La Rabia Wind Farm back to our serviced fleet,” GE Renewable Energy’s Onshore Services Leader for Europe, Robin Goodman, was quoted as saying in the statement.
According to the Spanish Wind Energy Association, Spain has over 25 gigawatts (GW) of wind energy capacity, giving it the fifth largest installed base in the world. Wind Europe reports that Europe has over 200 GW of wind energy, enabling it to account for 15% of the electricity consumed by EU countries in 2019.
GE Renewable Energy is a digitally-enabled service provider for renewable assets, and it monitors and maintains more than 15,000 wind turbines across the globe.
