E.ON Energy Services has been selected to manage four of Novatus Energy's wind farms with a combined capacity of over 700MW across three US states.

E.ON will deliver asset management, site supervision and balance of plant management for the 300MW South Plains II and 150MW Route 66 projects in Texas, the 148MW Oakfield wind farm in Maine and the 105MW Palouse scheme in Washington State. 

The company will serve as the asset manager of the wind farms for a period of five years.

With this contract, E.ON now manages, owns and operates wind farms across seven states and every major ISO. 

Novatus Energy’s portfolio in the US includes wind and solar generation facilities with a combined capacity exceeding 1.8GW, situated in eight states.

Novatus Energy CEO Steve Doyon said: "E.ON is one of the most experienced operators in North America and their track record of high quality and commitment to safety helped make this an easy decision. 

"Novatus Energy continues to look at opportunities for expansion, but managing, operating, and maintaining our assets in a safe and efficient manner is our first priority." 

E.ON North America Chairman Patrick Woodson said: "With the acquisitions of these projects, Novatus Energy has established itself as a major owner in U.S. wind.  Integrating a sizable portfolio takes careful planning and managing a lot of moving pieces.

"We are excited to bring our Service with An Owner's Eye philosophy to clients like Novatus Energy and look forward to getting to work on behalf of Novatus Energy."
