January 12, 2011
– At the AWEA O&M Project Performance and Reliability conference, held on 12 January 2011 global service partner for advanced blade services, LM Wind Power Service & Logistics announced that they have acquired Encore Power Services (EPS), a leading provider of field services and component repair for wind turbine generators in North America. John Mullins, President of EPS, remains in his role following the acquisition.
"Service of wind turbine generators is an exciting, timely addition to our portfolio," says Robert Burger, Vice President Service, Americas. "It's a natural complement to our blade service business and is a convenient, cost-saving option for our customers."
In 2010, LM Wind Power reconfigured its service and logistics business, increasing support to customers. Since then, the independent LM Wind Power Service & Logistics business has significantly increased in size and now offers inspection, repair, overhaul, preventive maintenance and blade logistics, covering a spectrum of service to wind turbine owners anywhere in the world.
Roman Thomassin, President, LM Wind Power Service & Logistics: "Our overall strategy is to build upon our well-established, respected blade service business, ultimately providing a complete range of wind related services. This acquisition is a significant part of our worldwide expansion, marking a milestone for our company and creating a value-added service for our customers in North America."
