EDF Renewable Services has secured the operations and maintenance (O&M) contract at the 20 MW Edom Hills Wind Farm.

Owned and operated by a subsidiary of BP Wind Energy, Edom Hills is located in the San Gorgonio Pass near Palm Springs, Calif., and consists of eight Clipper Windpower 2.5 MW turbines.

"Our experience with the Clipper turbines in Oaxaca, Mexico, provides confidence that our O&M team will optimize availability for BP Wind Energy,” says Dalen Copeland, director of business development for EDF Renewable Services. “Our depth of expertise in the San Gorgonio wind regime, complemented by our large local workforce, uniquely positions us to provide a smooth transition with minimum interruption of operations.”
