Fred. Olsen Renewables has contracted Natural Power to provide turbine servicing at two Morayshire wind farms.

These are the Rothes Wind Farm and Paul’s Hill Wind Farm, located south-west of Elgin.

Rothes consists of 22 turbines, each rated at 2.3 MW, providing a total installed capacity of 50.6 MW while Paul’s Hill consists of 28 turbines with a capacity of 64.4 MW.

Euan Fenelon, Director of Operations and Asset Management at Natural Power, said: “We provided advice and on-site support throughout the development and construction phases at these projects and we are delighted to be able to support Olsen in the operational phase through the provision of independent servicing.

“Our servicing and repair technicians form an integral part of the total asset management team and the front line of defence on behalf of many clients.

“Having developed knowledge and experience of a wide range of wind farms, turbine types and fault scenarios, each team has dedicated on-site personnel with a high degree of ownership of individual assets, works proactively to ensure the efficiency and longevity of clients’ wind farms, and works closely with site management teams to deliver value for the client.”

Anders Falkfjell, Operations Manager, Fred.Olsen Renewables, said: “I have high confidence in Natural Power delivering improved performance and reduced service cost for our wind farms.”
