Availon, a leading wind farm service provider, announced that it was awarded a complete maintenance contract for Vattenfall’s 12MW Jänschwalde wind farm, located near Cottbus in the German federal state of Brandenburg.
Availon was already in charge of maintaining three of the turbines since 2012, and it has now taken over the responsibility for all of the wind farm’s 2MW Vestas V90 turbines, through a full maintenance service agreement known as WindKeeper Complete. In addition to comprehensive maintenance services and the provision of numerous upgrades, the WindKeeper Complete maintenance package developed by Availon also includes the replacement of major components, and an availability guarantee.
“We have worked with Vattenfall on this project since 2012. The partnership resulted in great success, and we are very pleased that Vattenfall has decided to hand us over the responsibility for servicing their entire 12 MW wind farm”, commented Markus Spitzer, Managing Director of Availon.
