Vestas has secured a seven-year service and maintenance renewal from TransAlta for 50 V90-3.0 MW wind turbines at the Kent Hills wind power plant in New Brunswick. The project was built in two phases: The first 96 MW portion came online in 2008, and the second phase was commissioned in 2010.

"This contract extension demonstrates our strong relationship with Canada's largest investor-owned renewable energy provider," says Chris Brown, president of Vestas' sales and service division in Canada and the U.S. "We look forward to helping TransAlta continue to get the best possible return on their investment through 2020.”

Vestas says the service agreement features the Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 offering, an energy-based availability guarantee. This service option includes the VestasOnline surveillance system that remotely controls and monitors the turbines and is designed to predict potential maintenance issues, the company adds.

Vestas notes it installed its first wind turbine in Canada in 1997 and has since supplied more than 1,600 turbines totaling 2.7 GW in the country.
