UpWind Solutions, Inc., the wind industry’s leading third party provider of asset management operations and maintenance services (O&M) with 2.5+ GW in their fleet, announced they have signed O&M agreements for the Trinity Hills, Sherbino 2, and Silver Star 1 wind farms in Texas and the Flat Ridge 1 wind farm in Kansas, representing a combined 485 megawatts (MW) of production. The four wind farms are owned by wholly-owned subsidiaries of BP Wind Energy. The contract is for UpWind technicians to perform O&M services on a total of 194 Clipper C-93 and C-96 turbines.
“The geographic location of our regional hub in Sweetwater, TX and five years of experience working with Clipper technology is what established UpWind Solutions as the strongest independent service provider candidate to take on the operations and maintenance of the four BP Wind Energy sites” said Peter Wells, Chief Executive Officer at UpWind Solutions, Inc.
The four wind farms provide the equivalent electricity needed to supply over 145,000 average American homes annually.
As part of the company’s overall approach, UpWind Solutions’ technicians not only complete rigorous and comprehensive technical training with a focus on maintaining the highest safety standards in the industry, they are also encouraged to find solutions that optimize wind turbine availability and performance for wind project owners, ensuring the highest return on investment.
