Deutsche Windtechnik has secured service contracts for seven wind farms totalling 40MW in Sweden taking the total number of turbines it covers in Scandinavia to 100.

The wind farms are located in Vastergotland, Dalsland and Bohuslan and comprise 20 Vestas V90 machines in total. They have been operating for between eight and 12 years and are owned by seven unnamed companies.

Deutsche Windtechnik will provide full maintenance for the mark five and mark seven machines for 20 years.

The work will include replacing large components and rotor blades.

Deutsche Windtechnik managing director Linus Sturesson said the company is aiming to service 200 turbines in the region by 2019 and double the number of service technicians.

He said: “Thanks to our references and turbine expertise, we were able to convince the Swedish wind farm operators of our maintenance concepts within a very short time.”
