E.ON tapping into additional markets for its wind service business
- Operation and maintenance service offering for Italy and the UK
- Anticipate steady market growth
E.ON is expanding its service business in operation and maintenance of wind farms internationally into additional markets. The company announced today that going forward it will also be offering services to customers in the UK and Italy. The service scope will cover full as well as tailored operation and maintenance solutions for wind farm owners in these countries. Both markets have an installed wind capacity of together more than 25,000 megawatt.
"We are able to draw on our experience in operating our own wind farms and apply it to the services we provide in Italy and the UK. We anticipate an increase in demand for maintaining and overseeing sites, since the warranty periods for many of these installations is set to expire," said Anja Isabel-Dotzenrath, Chair of the Executive Board at E.ON Climate & Renewables.
The offers for the two new markets cover the entire spectrum of operation and maintenance activities for onshore as well as for offshore operations in the UK. Owing to its extensive international wind farm portfolio and the know-how that comes with that, E.ON is able to maintain and operate various wind turbine types regardless of the manufacturer.
E.ON Climate & Renewables has been active in the wind service market in Sweden and the U.S since 2015. Since January 2017 these services are also available to wind farm owners in Germany. The operation and maintenance service in these markets includes site management, major correctives and wind farm optimization.
