Earlier this year Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy awarded Global Wind Service (GWS) with the repowering of 122 V47 wind turbines at India Mesa wind farm in Texas USA, owned by NextEra.
The work that began on site in July, is now well underway and expected to last until the end of the year.
The scope of the repowering project includes removing the existing generators and cabinets and replacing them with new ones, as well as terminating and electrical work. Currently 45 people are working on site including subcontractors and GWS technicians.
“Following our establishment of a business unit in the U.S. and the crane and installation project at Bearkat I wind farm last year, we are really happy to have been awarded with yet another large project here in the country.
The guys out there on site have done a fantastic job so far and has proven to be a really strong team – I am really proud of them”, said Michael Nielsen, Area Manager GWS USA.
