Vestas seals 557 MW fleet-wide service deal in Australia with Infigen
The service agreements cover Infigen’s entire operating wind portfolio comprising 368 MW Vestas turbines and 189 MW Suzlon turbines across six sites in Australia. The order thus underlines Vestas’ leading position within multi-brand services as well as its fleet-wide lifetime service commitment to its customers. The agreements are full-scope Active Output Management 5000 (AOM5000) service packages in which Vestas guarantees minimum yield-based availability. The agreements are effective from 1 January 2018 for a period of between 7 and 15 years, depending on the wind park.
"Vestas has a proven track record, developed over many years, for delivering high quality service and optimal asset performance", said Ross Rolfe, Infigen’s Managing Director, “by consolidating our post-warranty services under a single provider; we believe that Vestas will assist Infigen to maximise the profitability of our operating fleet."
“Infigen is a trusted long-term partner and we look forward to helping Infigen continue to get the best possible lifetime return on investment over their entire fleet”, said Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific region. "This contract underlines Vestas as the leading fleet-wide service partner in the industry and further strengthens our position in Australia’s growing market for renewable energy.”
Vestas commenced servicing Infigen’s Lake Bonney I wind Park when it was connected to the grid more than 12 years ago. Under the new agreements, Vestas is making a long-term commitment to Infigen to deliver optimal energy output across Infigen's Vestas and Suzlon S88 fleet. The new contracts brings Vestas' total Suzlon turbine servicing portfolio in Australia to 355 MW.
Vestas has installed around 2 GW of turbines in Australia and will with the Infigen agreement service more than 2 GW in that market. With 73 GW under service globally, including more than 8 GW of multi-brand turbines, Vestas is the leading service provider in the industry.
