Siemens has signed a 15-year post-warranty service agreement extension for Rhyl Flats. It’s the first of its kind for Siemens.

Siemens has signed a long-term agreement with Rhyl Flats Wind Farm Ltd., 50.1 % owned by RWE AG, to continue providing service and maintenance at the Rhyl Flats wind farm for the next 15 years. Rhyl Flats is located approximately 8 km off the coast of North Wales. It has a maximum installed capacity of 90 MW. Siemens has been providing service and maintenance for the 25 SWT-3.6-107 turbines at Rhyl Flats since the project became operational in 2009. This agreement marks the first 15-year post-warranty offshore service extension for Siemens and extends the term through the lifecycle of the turbines.

"This new long-term agreement further strengthens our position as the world’s leading service provider for offshore wind and underscores our ability to help our customers realize the full potential of their wind turbines throughout the units’ estimated lifecycle," said Mark Albenze, Head of Siemens Power Generation Services, Wind Power and Renewables. "The Rhyl Flats Wind Farm is one of 12 offshore wind projects Siemens is providing expert service and maintenance for in Great Britain."

Siemens’ offshore service personnel for Rhyl Flats are based at an operations and maintenance base built at the Port of Mostyn. The port is also the service and maintenance base for the nearby 576 MW Gwynt y Môr offshore project.
