Capitalizing on the expertises of both Cobra Energia and GE, the agreement provides the flexibility for Cobra Energia to complete routine maintenance with GE contributing advanced solutions for advanced unplanned maintenance, troubleshooting, upgrades and parts. The GE service agreement covers Cobra Energia’s entire fleet of GE 1.5-megawatt wind turbines coming off warranty between 2010 and 2012.

“GE’s service agreement with Cobra Energia demonstrates one of the many ways in which GE can work with our customers to provide a customized level of support,” said Diarmaid Mulholland, general manager of GE’s global wind services. “Cobra Energia will benefit from the latest GE technology as well as our global resources and commitment to increasing project performance and profitability.”

Among the benefits that the GE service contract brings to Cobra Energia are wind turbine availability, improved performance, extended life and predictable maintenance costs. Other features will include remote control of wind turbine operations and advanced troubleshooting capabilities.

Cobra Energia is a subsidiary of Spanish building company ACS, and operates some of the largest wind farms in Spain, a world leader in the use of wind power.
