EDF Renewable Services - formerly enXco Service Corporation - has signed a multiyear operations and maintenance agreement with Detroit Edison for two wind projects for a combined 222.4 MW of wind-powered generating capacity.
The 110.4 MW Thumb Wind Project and the 112 MW Echo Wind Project, located in Huron and Sanilac counties, Michigan in the US consist of General Electric (GE) 1.6 MW turbines. These two projects join the 102.4 MW Gratiot Wind Project, currently under contract with EDF Renewable Services, for a total of 324.8 MW.
“We look forward to providing exceptional services to these projects and growing the Detroit Edison portfolio,” said 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," he continued. "We look forward to bringing new job opportunities to the local communities and working with Detroit Edison on future projects in support of their growth plans.”
Tom Komjathy, DTE Energy Renewables program manager, said the two wind projects "show we’re making great progress toward meeting the state’s renewable energy goals.”
Under the terms of the 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 NERC compliant Operations Control Center.
