Service provider Availon has been awarded a complete maintenance contract for Vattenfall's 12 MW Janschwalde wind farm, located near Cottbus in the German federal state of Brandenburg.

Availon was already in charge of maintaining three of the turbines since 2012, and it has now taken over the responsibility for all of the wind farm's 2 MW Vestas V90 machines through a full maintenance service agreement known as WindKeeper Complete. The company notes its WindKeeper Complete package includes the replacement of major components and an availability guarantee.

“We have worked with Vattenfall on this project since 2012. The partnership resulted in great success, and we are very pleased that Vattenfall has decided to hand us over the responsibility for servicing their entire 12 MW wind farm,” comments Markus Spitzer, managing director of Availon.
