Community Windpower signs long-term service agreements with Vestas for Aikengall & Dalry Wind Farms

CWL Vestas

Community Windpower and Vestas announce the signing of new 10-year and 12-year service agreements. Vestas will deliver a long-term service agreement, ending in 2034, for the operation and maintenance of the 16 V90 wind turbines at Community Windpower’s Aikengall Community Wind Farm. The agreement signed with Dalry Community Wind Farm will encompass the servicing of the wind farm’s 6 V90 wind turbines until 2032.

The Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service contracts are designed to ensure sustained performance of the turbines through regular preventative maintenance of the asset. Vestas has been performing the operation and maintenance of both wind farms since their inception, over a decade ago. The newly signed contracts are extensions of the current service agreements and will run for the rest of the projects’ lifetimes.

Community Windpower’s Aikengall Wind Farm and Dalry Community Wind Farm comprise 22 V90 turbines in total with a combined output capacity of 66MW. Together, the developments displace 74,500 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per annum and provide 43,300 homes annually with green energy.

Ray Ball, Chief Operating Officer and Finance Director at Community Windpower, said: “Aikengall Community Wind Farm and Dalry Community Wind Farm are an important part of our portfolio and supporting Scotland in its ambitious aim of achieving Net Zero by 2045.

“Vestas is a trusted partner of Community Windpower, having delivered high availability and strong performance through the projects’ lifetimes so far. The AOM 5000 service agreements acknowledge Vestas strong position in the O&M area in Scotland and ensures that our Aikengall and Dalry Community Wind Farms will continue to reliably generate clean energy for the people of Scotland”.

Keith Wallace, Senior Director at Vestas said: “It’s fantastic to continue to work with Community Windpower and to extend the operational life of these projects to 25 and 26 years, which enjoy such high wind conditions. This shows the fantastic engineering in our V90-3 platform, and we’re pleased to be providing full-scope service to optimise their performance and renewable energy generation for the UK and local communities.”
