Vestas secured a two-year service agreement from ScottishPower Renewables for five Vestas installed wind power plants in Scotland with a total capacity of 120 MW, which includes 162 units of V47-660 kW and V52-850 kW wind turbines.

According to Vestas, the service contract extension includes Vestas' Active Output Management 3000 service agreement. The service contract extension is a two-year agreement, with an option for one additional year, Vestas notes.

Vestas applies its maintenance approach to more than 25,000 wind turbines worldwide, which enables it to plan and carry out service inspections, thereby reducing wind turbine downtime to an absolute minimum. Our customers continue to invest in long-term service partnerships with Vestas, and in the U.K. and Ireland alone, 95% of expiring service contracts have been renewed this year.
