Deutsche Windtechnik Gets UK Service Contracts for Senvion Wind Farms

Edinburgh, UK / Bremen, Germany – Deutsche Windtechnik AG is expanding by its UK subsidiary in the UK by providing O&M for five wind farms operated by Innogy Renewables UK. In the future, Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd. will cover the service of Senvion wind turbines in five British wind projects.

Besides Siemens, AN Bonus and NEG Micon, the independent service provider now counts also Senvion turbines as part of its knowledge base in the UK, and hence follows the path of the other Deutsche Windtechnik units. The group serves more than 400 turbines of all Senvion-productions series, onshore as well as offshore.

The new maintenance contracts in the UK cover a total of 40 Senvion turbines – for MM70, MM82 and MM92 – and run for three years each. The proximity of the wind farms gives Deutsche Windtechnik the opportunity to install cross-park service structures in the northern regions of England including a warehouse and local office. Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd. will employ additional service teams, engineers and supervisors with a broad expertise in Senvion technology, with the first teams already having been employed. With this reinforcement the total number of employees in the UK business unit reaches 100.

“We have a very close knowledge transfer with the Training Center and engineering department of Deutsche Windtechnik in Germany, so we guarantee a top level service quality starting with the first day of the term”, says Billy Stevenson, Managing Director of Deutsche Windtechnik Ltd.
