New maintenance contract with SGRE in France

Endiprev France started, this week, a new contract with Siemens Gamesa to perform a preventive maintenance campaign in France. This project is similar to the campaign Endiprev executed earlier this year, in Northwestern Spain. Our team will be working on eight Siemens Gamesa’s onshore wind turbines on the Arc-en-Thiérache Wind Farm. This contract’s scope is to perform a torquing activity in these wind turbines. Endiprev will be performing the first maintenance campaign after the commissioning of the wind farm.

For this project, we selected four technicians with a high level of experience and intensive training in the tasks required. The team will be working on G90-2.0MW wind turbines. It has a rotor diameter of 90 meters, which allows the turbine to produce a nominal power of more than 2MW.

Siemens Gamesa is one of the most important Wind Turbine Manufacturers worldwide, and it has been showing an interesting growth in the French region. Last year, Eolien Maritime France selected the company as the preferred supplier and service provider of almost 1 GW for offshore wind projects in the country. Concerning the onshore sector, it has also been showing very promising new onshore technology. In France alone, Siemens Gamesa is already responsible for 1.636MW of installed capacity and counting. The company will be the supplier for the Fécamp Offshore Wind Farm.

Since 2019, Endiprev has been keeping a good and strong partnership with Siemens Gamesa, on commissioning and maintenance activities. A large share of our projects with the OEM has been in Europe, mostly in Portugal and Spain. But, Endiprev has also been working on important projects in the US, such as the Hancock County Wind Farm.  Despite the difficulties everyone has experienced this year, we continue to be a trustful and committed partner to Siemens Gamesa, as this new maintenance contract states.
