EDF Renewable Services has signed a multiyear operations and maintenance (O&M) agreement with DTE Energy for the 75 MW Brookfield Wind Park.

Located in Huron County, Mich., and consisting of 44 GE 1.7 MW turbines, the Brookfield Wind Park joins DTE's Thumb, Echo and Gratiot Wind Parks, which are currently under contract with EDF Renewable Services, for a total of 400 MW.

"We look forward to extending our business relationship with DTE Energy and providing exceptional services to the Brookfield project,” says Dalen Copeland, director of business development for EDF Renewable Services. “We are confident our extensive experience, which includes over 2,000 GE turbines under contract, and resources will ensure the long-term success of this project.”

Under the terms of the new agreement, EDF Renewable Services will provide selected O&M for the turbines and balance of plant, project oversight, and 24/7 remote monitoring from its newly built Operations Control Center in San Diego.
