The German wind turbine servicing company will take over the job from the turbines’ manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems A/S, starting February 2020, according to a press release on Thursday.
Deutsche Windtechnik cited “flexible cost structuring and efficient logistics” as some of the reasons for being awarded the contract. It said it was able to offer a more than 15% discount for its services, adding that its maintenance base is located in the vicinity of the wind farm.
