Senvion has been awarded a long term ISP contract by SSE to service four of the utility company's wind farms in the north of Scotland.

Senvion will be providing full service support for 107 of its MM82 turbines across the four wind farms. This is one of the largest single service contracts signed by Senvion, covering nearly 10% of its entire service portfolio in the UK.

The services Senvion will provide include scheduled maintenance of the wind turbines, replacement of major components as needed and high Annual Technical Availability during the tenure of the agreed ISP.

The Senvion Inverness Service Centre played a crucial role in securing the contract with SSE, and will be responsible for managing the service contract.

Stuart Hood, SSE Head of Onshore Wind said: "We are pleased to have extended our partnership with Senvion which provides long term coverage and security to a significant proportion of our operational assets."

Knud Rissel, Managing Director Europe North said: "We are delighted to be awarded this historic service contract with SSE, one of our longest standing customers in the UK. By selecting us again, SSE have demonstrated their trust in our people, technology and customer service. The scale of the project also cements our position as one of the leading turbine service providers in the UK and our commitment to long term support for our customers. At a time when reducing the Levelized Cost of Energy and improving efficiency is at its height, long-term, quality service provision is more important now than it has ever been."
