Siemens (NYSE: SI) has entered into two long-term service and maintenance agreements covering 132 of its SWT-2.3 turbines at the White Creek Wind and the Harvest Wind projects near Roosevelt, Washington.
Under terms of the agreements, Siemens will provide an additional 15 years of service and maintenance for 43 SWT-2.3-93 turbines operating at the Harvest Wind Project and for 89 SWT-2.3-93 units at the neighboring White Creek Wind project.
“As the wind energy industry in the U.S. continues to mature, it’s important that we work closely with our customers to help maintain the continued reliability, availability and economic efficiency of their units over the long term,” said Randy Zwirn, President and CEO of Siemens Power Generation Services. “With our significant focus on R&D as well as advancing technologies, such as remote diagnostics and data analytics, we can gain valuable insights that can help contribute to our customers’ long-term success.”
Siemens has been servicing the turbines at both sites since the start of commercial operation, 2007 for White Creek and 2009 for Harvest Wind.
