Vestas wins service orders for 2.2 GW Gamesa turbines

After a monumental tender, Spanish utility Iberdrola has awarded maintenance contracts worth more EUR 110 million. Vestas is the biggest winner, while Siemens Gamesa will provide maintenance for 1,265 of its co-owner's megawatts.

Iberdrola has awarded contracts for maintenance on wind turbines with total capacity of 4,425 MW. The contracts concern almost four fifths of the 5.6 GW wind which the energy company operates in Spain and Portugal. The maintenance work was tendered as two-year contracts for basic maintenance as well as risk service for three years. Overall, the tendered framework contracts are worth EUR 110 million, states the company.

Iberdrola is the largest shareholder in Siemens Gamesa besides Siemens. However, while the historic tie to the Spanish part of the turbine manufacturer is clearly reflected in the utility's tendered portfolio, which includes only Gamesa turbines, the tender's result did not reflect the connection. According to procurement rules, the tie between the firms should not have played a part anyway.
