Gamesa has completed overhaul and life extension upgrades to the Medicine Bow Wind Farm in Carbon County, Wyoming (USA) for Commonwealth Bay.
The upgrade package includes a 15-year comprehensive operations and maintenance agreement. The project included the application of Gamesa’s Turbine Overhaul and Life Extension programs to the wind farm’s nine turbines, produced by Vestas and having nameplate ratings from 600 kW to 660 kW. The turbines were upgraded to 650 kW and 710 kW machines, increasing the original rated power for the wind farm by approximately 7.5%. A variety of additional life extension upgrades are being applied to ensure additional profitable operation until service year 30. In addition, Gamesa will operate and maintain the wind complex for the next 15 years.
