E.ON to Provide Asset Management and Balance of Plant Management at the Amazon Wind Farm in Texas
AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Lincoln Clean Energy (LCE) has selected E.ON Energy Services to provide asset management and balance of plant services for its Amazon Wind Farm Texas near Snyder, TX. The 253 megawatt facility will sell 90% of the power generated to Amazon under a long-term contract.
“Complimenting LCE resources with subject matter experts is a key part of our growth plan and E.ON was an obvious choice given their extensive operating experience in Texas wind power,” said Declan Flanagan, CEO of LCE.
“We are excited to be working with Lincoln as they look to expand. As an owner, we understand the challenges these long-term projects face, and we want to bring our ‘Service with An Owner’s Eye’ philosophy to the Amazon Wind Farm Texas facility,” E.ON North American Chairman Patrick Woodson said. “Our partners choose E.ON Energy Services because they know we have the breadth of experience to deliver high quality, safety-focused services to operate their assets with a focus on the bottom line.”
The agreement with Lincoln Clean Energy is the latest in E.ON Energy Services’ portfolio. Last month, E.ON signed an agreement with Novatus Energy to manage four of its wind farms, totaling more than 700 MW across three different states.
E.ON is one of the world’s largest generators of renewable energy, and has invested more than $12 billion globally in wind and solar projects over the last decade. E.ON manages, owns, and/or operates wind farms in seven states and in nearly every major ISO.
