GE Wind Deals Spain China

GE Renewable Energy has announced that it has secured two wind energy deals in Spain and China. The first, to provide a 5-year full-service agreement (FSA) for the La Rabia Wind Farm in Spain for Naturgy. And the second, its first contract with Power China Guizhou Engineering to supply 12 units of 2.5-132 low-wind speed turbines for a 30 MW wind farm near Puyang city, China. 

The firm has reported that it has been selected by Naturgy to provide a 5-year full-service agreement (FSA) for the La Rabia Wind Farm in Spain. The wind farm includes 13 Eco-80 turbines. The firm will be providing full preventive and corrective maintenance tasks on these 13 units in addition to the 50 units of the same technology at Naturgy’s Pehimo Wind Farm, already under contract. With this agreement, GE Renewable Energy now has four servicing contracts covering approximately 100 Naturgy wind turbines.

Robin Goodman, GE Renewable Energy’s Onshore Services Leader, Europe, said “this deal represents the confidence that Naturgy has in GE Renewable Energy and the quality of our services offerings. We are delighted to welcome the La Rabia Wind Farm back to our serviced fleet.”

In China, the firm has secured its first contract with Power China Guizhou Engineering Co., Ltd to supply 12 units of 2.5-132 low-wind speed turbines for a 30 MW wind farm near Puyang city, China. The order includes a two-year service agreement. This is the first onshore wind contract in China with PowerChina, a long-term global EPC partner of GE. Construction of the project is planned to commence in the fourth quarter of 2020 and is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2020.

Zhao Lin, General Manager of Onshore Wind, China, said “we’re delighted to see our first onshore wind partnership with PowerChina. GE has a long-term relationship with PowerChina and has consistently met expectations and commitments by designing solutions to enable their success in the energy sector. This agreement with PowerChina is significant for GE Renewable Energy as it affirms our commitment towards helping China meet its clean energy targets.”

The firm will leverage its strong supply chain in China to produce and supply the wind turbines from its factory in Puyang, which recently celebrated winning the ‘2019 Excellent Projects Award’ from the Puyang City Government.
