UNITED STATES: MidAmerican Energy has appointed enXco to provide operations and maintenance services for four projects with a total capacity of 477MW.

The O&M contract is for GE's 1.5MW turbine

All of the projects are in Iowa and use GE 1.5MW turbines. They are Carroll (150MW), Charles City (75MW), Victory (99MW) and Walnut (153MW).

EnXco said the deal includes project oversight and remote monitoring from the company's control centre in Minnesota.
