Global wind energy company Vestas has secured a 10-year service agreement with International Power Canda which covers 276 wind turbines at 8 power plants across Canada.
The service agreement totals 533 megawatts (MW), made up of 335 MW in existing power plants located in New Brunswick, Ontario and Prince Edward Island and 198 MW set to be completed in 2013 in Ontario.
“As a leader in service and maintenance in Canada, we are honoured to continue our partnership with International Power Canada,” said Martha Wyrsch, President of Vestas-Canadian Wind Technology, Inc. “International Power Canada is a recognized innovator and driver in the Canadian wind market, and we are very proud to work with them.”
