Siemens wants all the wind projects
Siemens lands one wind contract + is in for another: Siemens Gamesa has been awarded the five-year contract to operate and maintain the New and Renewable Energy Authority’s (NREA) 220 MW Gabal El Zeit 2 wind plant in the Gulf of Suez, the local press reported yesterday, citing sources at the authority. The German conglomerate, which was among six companies that were said last year to be bidding for the contract, will sign a final agreement later this month, the sources said.
Next up: Gabal El Zeit 3. Siemens Gamesa, Vestas, and Voltalia are among the companies planning to bid for a 5-7 year operation and maintenance contract for the Gabal El Zeit 3 plant, the sources said. The NRWA will publish the tender brochure in the coming two weeks and bidding will open in the second half of March of early April.
