Senvion announces 15 year ISP extensions for 95 turbines in US

- Operations and maintenance contracts highlight commitment to North American market

Hamburg/Montreal/Denver: Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, has concluded agreements for the fifteen year extension of operations and maintenance contracts for 95 wind turbines across two wind farms in the US with EverPower. Combined, the wind farms have a rated output of 194 megawatts (MW) of energy, producing enough to power over 125,000 homes.

The Howard Wind Farm is located in Steuben County, New York, and consists of 27 MM92 turbines with 80 meter hub heights and total installed capacity of 55 MW. The first 25 turbines were installed in 2011 with two additional turbines installed in 2012. The extension to the ISP contract will run from March 2017 until 2032. The Twin Ridges Wind Farm features 68 MM92 turbines with a mix of hub heights of 100 and 80 meters in order to maximise yield. The 139 MW wind farm was installed in 2012 and is located near the Maryland/Pennsylvania border. The ISP contract has been extended from March 2018 until 2033.

Helmut Herold, CEO at Senvion North America, said: "We are extremely proud to announce the extensions of these ISP contracts with EverPower. These agreements demonstrate the ongoing collaborative partnership we have formed together. Senvion is also dedicated to working with the local community to make a strong, positive economic and social impact and these ISP agreements will further support this." With service teams across the country, and a spare parts facility in Portland, Oregon, Senvion USA has built up a strong operations and maintenance team and with this additional news, Senvion proves its ongoing commitment to the US market and the positive and long term employment opportunities the wind industry offers local communities.

Andrew Golembeski, Chief Operations Officer at EverPower said: "EverPower has been pleased with the performance of the Senvion turbines at both our Howard and Twin Ridges facilities and have a great deal of confidence in Senvion's maintenance team. Extending these contracts made a lot of sense and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Senvion."
