The contract is for the 112 Echo Wind project and 110MW Thumb Wind project, which are both located in Michigan and use GE 1.6MW turbines.

The deal takes EDF's total O&M capacity with Detroit Edison to 324MW. EDF service around 2,000 GE turbines. Under the agreement, EDF will provide servicing, project oversight and remote monitoring.

Speaking about the deal, DTE renewables programme manager Tom Komjathy said: "We’re looking forward to continuing our work with EDF Renewable Services as we expand the wind portion of our renewable energy portfolio.

"The two wind projects show we’re making great progress toward meeting the state’s renewable energy goals."

In August, American renewables developer and services company enXco changed its name to EDF Renewable Services.

The company was bought by EDF Energies Nouvelles, part of the EDF group, ten years ago, and the change of name reflects its ongoing integration into the French electricity giant.
