A consortium consisting of GE and Spanish energy provider Tamoin Energías Renovables has signed a contract with Iberdrola for the maintenance of wind turbines. The contract covers 310 GE wind turbines erected on Spanish territory. It is the most comprehensive service contract to date in Europe for GE turbines.

The contract will cover planned and unplanned maintenance activities for GE wind turbines in the Cuesta Colorada, Cerro Calderón, Cerro Palo, Muela 1, Maza, Calleja, Isabela and Sierra Quemada y Gavilanes Iberdrola wind farms. The contract is for a three-year period with an option for a two-year extension.

GE will contribute its technological expertise and ensure high availability and reliability through the supply of replacement parts, experts, and technical support. Tamoin will supply qualified personnel. “Together with Tamoin as our partner, our goal is to offer our clients at Iberdrola the highest quality service. With optimised processes and the newest GE technology, we want to help Iberdrola optimise their operating costs while at the same time obtaining the highest energy yields possible,” said Ramon Paramio, who heads up the GE wind services division in Europe.
