EDF Renewable Services, the provider of renewable O&M Services in North America, is pleased to announce that Kansas City Power & Light Co. (KCP&L) has extended an operations and maintenance agreement for the Spearville Wind Project (100.5 MW) and Spearville II Wind Project (48 MW) located in Kansas totaling 148.5 MW of GE wind turbines.

“EDF Renewable Services signed its first O&M agreement with KCP&L back in September 2006. We appreciate that they have trusted us to provide O&M services for the past 9 years. KCP&L is a valued customer that is committed to providing affordable clean wind energy to its ratepayers,” said Larry Barr, executive vice president of EDF Renewable Services. “The turbines at Spearville are part of the GE fleet we manage encompassing more than 3,000 turbines for 4,800 MW.”

Under terms of the agreement, remote services will be performed by the company’s NERC registered operations control center (OCC). The OCC provides an efficient, reliable, and secure operating platform, while benefiting from the centralization of SCADA functions and consolidation of multiple vendor environments to provide a common operating view. With enhanced service offerings with strategic partnerships, EDF RS brings auxiliary engineering and SCADA solutions to its customers.

EDF Renewable Services operates over 9.3 GW of wind, solar and biomass projects throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico, employing 500 people in positions ranging from on-site technicians to control center operators, data analysts and performance engineering.
