Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has secured a landmark 30-year contract to provide full-scope operation and maintenance services for the 226-MW Murra Warra wind farm, consisting of 61 Senvion turbines in Victoria in Australia. The project features Senvion’s most advanced onshore turbines powered at 3.7 MW with a 144-meter rotor, generating enough electricity to meet the demands of 420,000 Victorian households. As the first OEM to operate the wind farm, Siemens Gamesa has assumed responsibilities for servicing both the wind turbines and the electrical balance of the plant for a term of 30 years, which will ensure turbine performance and maximize the operational lifetime of the assets.

The agreement marks the second order Siemens Gamesa has secured to service Senvion turbines in Australia, following the first to provide 20-year, full-scope operation and maintenance services at a 135-MW wind project also in Victoria.

Siemens Gamesa acquired Senvion’s Onshore European service assets and Intellectual Property in early January 2020, which has expanded the company’s multibrand service portfolio to more than 10 GW globally and enabled the company to obtain the knowhow of Senvion turbine technologies.
