ENERGIA LIMPIA XXI. Brazil moves forward with more wind energy. Leveraging its industry-leading service capabilities, Vestas has secured a multibrand service agreement in Brazil for the maintenance of the 430 MW Alto Sertão III wind complex, composed of 24 wind parks in Bahia, from Renova Energia.
Energía Limpia XXI magazine reports that Vestas will deliver a long-term service agreement (AOM 2000) for the operation and maintenance of 155 Alstom ECO 100, 110 and 122 wind turbines. The contract is designed to ensure sustained performance through regular preventive maintenance of the asset over the next 10 years.
“Multibrand service deals demonstrate how Vestas can leverage our global footprint, market experience, broad service solutions and extensive supply chain to provide value for our customers throughout the wind park lifecycle – whether that is for service of Vestas turbines or third-party technology”, says Eduardo Ricotta, President of Vestas Latin America. “Now, under a Vestas service contract, we will be able to strengthen and optimise the projects’ energy production and provide long-term business certainty for Renova Energia”.
“Renova Energia is pleased to appoint Vestas as its long-term maintenance services provider for the 155 turbines at our Alto Sertão III, Phase A complex”, says Ricardo Lira, COO of Renova Energia.
To secure this order, Vestas has leveraged its industry-leading service footprint to deliver another multibrand service contract in Brazil, adding to the more than 500 MW multibrand turbines already under Vestas service in the country. Today, Vestas services more than 123 GW of wind turbines, including more than 8 GW non-Vestas turbines, across more than 30 non-Vestas turbine models in 25 countries and more than 300 sites.
