Operations and maintenance service provider EDF Renewable Services has agreed to a deal that will extend its contract with Kansas City Power & Light Company (KCP&L).
The deal will see operations and maintenance services offered for both the Spearville Wind Project (100.5MW) and the Spearville II Wind Project (48MW) — located in Kansas — for a total of 148.5MW.
In December last year the company agreed to contracts for 454MW of wind and 134MWp of solar power in Canada. The company operates more than 9GW of wind, solar and biomass in the US, Canada and Mexico.
Larry Barr, Executive vice president of EDF Renewable Services, said: “EDF Renewable Services signed its first O&M agreement with KCP&L back in September 2006. We appreciate that they have trusted us to provide O&M services for the past nine years. KCP&L is a valued customer that is committed to providing affordable clean wind energy to its ratepayers. The turbines at Spearville are part of the GE fleet we manage encompassing more than 3,000 turbines for 4,800 MW.”
As part of the deal, remote services will be maintained by EDF’s NERC registered Operations Control Center (OCC).
