Onshore Wind: Endiprev starts cooperation with SGRE

2019-07-3

Endiprev was awarded four contracts to work with Siemens Gamesa in the commissioning and maintenance of several onshore wind farms in Europe and the US.

SGRE and Endiprev global partnership for the commissioning and maintenance of several onshore wind farms.

Endiprev will perform the commissioning and maintenance of several Siemens Gamesa onshore wind turbines. This is the conclusion of long-term negotiations between Europe and American delegations of both companies, reinforcing a global partnership. In fact, “the confidence shown by SGRE teams in Endiprev’s work is very gratifying, and we are extremely confident in Endiprev’s affirmation as a reference supplier of this global leader”, said Tiago Ornelas, Business Development Manager at Endiprev.

Wind farms in Europe

Endiprev will perform the maintenance of the Pisco and Fafe onshore wind farms in Portugal. The first one has 17 Gamesa G114/2000 wind turbines, with a capacity of 34 MW. The second one has 39 Gamesa G87/2000 wind turbines, totalizing a capacity of 78 MW. 

Additionally, there are ongoing conversations to work with Siemens Gamesa teams on other European projects.

Wind farms in the US

Endiprev will work on the Green River onshore Wind Farm, performing its commissioning. With 74 SG 2.6MW-114 wind turbines, this project has a total capacity of 194 MW, expected to produce enough energy to power approximately 16,000 homes in Illinois per year. Our team will also perform the commissioning of the Grady onshore Wind Farm. In this wind farm, there are 84 SWT 2.3-108 wind turbines. 

Meanwhile, Endiprev will also work on a state power cables retrofit, in Woodward Mountain and Indian Mesa Wind Farms, totalizing 367 wind turbines. 

These projects are the beginning of a long-term partnership with Siemens Gamesa all over the world. In fact, Endiprev is a strategic partner for Wind Turbines Manufacturers due to our global presence. Not only we have the capacity to operate across continents, but we also gather onshore and offshore experiences. “We have been widely discussing the US offshore market to prepare the promising future in the country”, said Tiago Ornelas.
