The company is expected to provide service and maintenance services for a period of ten years alongside carrying out an up gradation to 44 SWT-2.3-93 turbines at Port Alma and four SWT -2.3-93 at Chatham Kent.

Located on the shores of Lake Erie, the Port Alma and Chatham Kent wind projects have an installed capacity of about 100MW each.

Siemens Energy Energy Service Division Service Renewables CEO Tim Holt remarked that having supplied the wind turbines for both the projects the company had the expertise to carry out the maintenance services.

"We look forward to working with Kruger Energy as their service provider for these important renewable energy projects, which provide clean energy to homes in Canada," added Holt.

The new contracts are an extension to the existing four-year service agreement for Port Alma and two-year service agreement for the Chatham Kent wind energy plants.
