In a 10-year contract, the company will support reliable wind power for 178 wind turbines across eight sites.

GE has signed a 10-year contract with Spanish wind developer Cobra Energia to provide advanced services for 178 GE wind turbines installed at eight wind farms across Spain. The agreement is GE’s largest wind energy services contract in Europe and reinforces the company’s position in Europe’s highly competitive wind turbine services sector.

Capitalizing on the expertise of both companies, the agreement provides the flexibility for Cobra Energia to complete routine maintenance with GE contributing advanced solutions for advanced unplanned maintenance, troubleshooting, upgrades, and parts. The agreement covers Cobra Energia’s entire fleet of GE 1.5-megawatt wind turbines coming off warranty between 2010 and 2012.

“GE’s service agreement with Cobra Energia demonstrates one of the many ways in which GE can work with our customers to provide a customized level of support,” said Diarmaid Mulholland, general manager-global wind services for GE Power & Water. Cobra Energia is a subsidiary of Spanish building company ACS and operates some of the largest wind farms in Spain. Spain ranks among the world’s leaders in the use of renewable energy, including wind and solar.
