Suzlon Group, a global renewable energy solutions provider, announced that Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation (SWECO) — its wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary — received an extension for one more year to undertake operations, maintenance, and service for EDP Renováveis.
The extended agreement is for maintaining the fleet of all 190 units of the S88 2.1-MW wind-turbine generators, totaling ~400MW. The wind farm is installed across four sites including Rattlesnake and Wheatfield in Oregon, Meadow Lake in Indiana, and the Kittitas Valley in Washington.
“The contract extension reaffirms our customers trust in our service and product quality standards. This is one of our long-standing customers and we are proud to be partnering with them for deployment of clean energy solutions,” said Andy Cukurs, CEO, SWECO. “With over 2,700 MW of installations — making it our second largest region — the U.S.A. will play a pivotal role in our future growth strategy. The recently announced Production Tax Credit extension for a block of five years demonstrates the United States’ commitment towards renewable energy.”
He added: “Suzlon is committed to contributing towards this transition of U.S.A. from traditional fossil fuels to cleaner forms of energy.”
