Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has secured a five-year service from ENMAX Energy for the 63MW Kettles Hill Wind Farm in Alberta, Canada.

As per the agreed terms, the company will offer servicing and maintenance for the farm under the active output management mode.

Active output management ensures an energy-based availability of about 97% assurance to ensure the turbines are properly operational.

Vestas Canada and the US Sales and Service president Chris Brown said that deal is an extension of the company’s existing relationship with ENMAX Energy.

ENMAX Energy Operations vice president Bert Adam added, "We are pleased to secure an extension of our long-term service agreement with Vestas for the Kettles Hill Wind Farm.

"This agreement provides for improved flexibility and alignment on performance objectives to help ensure reliability and profitability with this facility."

The first phase of the Kettles Hill Wind Farm was built in 2006 with five V80-1.8MW turbines, while the second phase was completed in 2007 with 30 V80-1.8MW turbines.
