GE to provide wind service coverage for entire First Wind GE fleet

Schenectady, N.Y.—September 8, 2011—First Wind, a Boston-based independent wind energy company, has selected GE as its service provider for the company's entire fleet of 264 GE wind turbines at eight sites across the U.S.

The eight-year comprehensive service agreement expands upon existing contracts with First Wind, and is the first contract to cover an entire fleet of wind turbines signed by GE to date.

GE's agreement with First Wind will include operations, parts and on-site support including a comprehensive maintenance package. First Wind will benefit from GE's latest high tech offerings, including WindBOOST, designed to increase wind turbine production; Winter Ice Operations Mode, which can allow turbines to recapture production in colder climates; and a full service agreement on wind turbine drive trains with the goal of increasing reliability and performance. GE also will provide an availability guarantee at First Wind's wind sites in Maine, Utah and Hawaii.

GE's wind service solutions are supported by the company's advanced technology, global resources and service facilities, and a network of skilled, highly trained local technicians who are closely connected to GE's engineering organization.

GE service agreements also give customers access to GE's suite of turbine upgrades that are based on new product evolutions and the in-depth product knowledge that only an OEM can provide.
