GE and Tamoin Energias bag wind turbine deal from Iberdrola Renovables

Greentech Lead Europe: A consortium including GE and
Tamoin Energias  Renovables signed a wind turbine maintenance agreement in
Europe with Iberdrola Renovables of Madrid.

The contract with Iberdrola covers servicing 310 GE wind
turbines installed in Spain.

The agreement is for three years with an option to extend for two additional
years.

GE will act as the technology partner in the consortium
to provide high availability and reliability for the installed GE wind turbine
fleet by supplying parts, specialized labor and technological support, while
Tamoin, Spanish energy services company, will supply skilled labor.

The scope of the agreement includes planned and unplanned maintenance for the
GE wind turbines at the following Iberdrola wind farms: Cuesta Colorada, Cerro
Calderon, Cerro Palo, Muela 1, Maza, Calleja, Isabela and Sierra Quemada y
Gavilanes.

“Our goal, in collaboration with our partner Tamoin, is to provide Iberdrola
with the highest level of service to help optimize operations while maximizing
production,” said Ramon Paramio, Europe wind services leader at GE’s renewable
energy business.

The GE-Tamoin consortium has been working with Iberdrola for the past two years
at Iberdrola wind farms in Germany and Poland.

In addition, GE has provided equipment and services to
Iberdrola for a wide range of energy projects over recent years, including the
thermal, aeroderivative and renewable energy sectors.

GE said it has more than doubled its investment in services research and
development in both 2010 and 2011, as it continues to build a world-class portfolio
of services.

GE’s wind service solutions incorporate the company’s
advanced technology, global resources and service facilities and a network of
skilled, highly trained local technicians who are closely connected to GE’s
engineering organization.
