Atlas Copco Rental has signed a 3-year European framework agreement with MHI Vestas Offshore Wind for temporary power during offshore wind power projects.
MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, with headquarters in Aarhus, Denmark, rented more than 100 units of Atlas Copco Rental’s QAE 30 kVA generators for the commissioning of various wind power projects in Europe. The framework agreement includes all maintenance and service by Atlas Copco Rental’s European network of service technicians.
“We are very proud to be the preferred supplier of temporary power solutions for MHI Vestas Offshore Wind,” says Michael Nøhr-Petersen, Country Manager for Atlas Copco Rental in Denmark. “Our new developed QAE30 parallel diesel generators are an excellent match for this type of wind power commissioning work. With their light weight, robust design and paralleling capability they can be easily transported and installed on an offshore wind farm. Thanks to our strong service support in Europe, we can provide for predictive maintenance and planned service thus ensuring highest uptime for all our rental products.”
