Turbine Supply Agreement Meaning

III. Balance between facility planning, engineering and construction services. As described above, wind project developers typically acquire licenses for the use of supplier technology as part of the acquired wind turbine generators. This leaves considerable planning and engineering work to be carried out, including geotechnical studies, microlocation, crane and turbine design and engineering, road planning and other earthworks, environmental measurements and related activities, as well as collection systems, switches, substations and interconnections, and possibly transmission lines. This planning and the balance sheet of associated acquisition and construction work could be carried out by the turbine supplier under one or more agreements, but they are usually provided by a third party who, in accordance with a balance agreement of the plan, enters directly into a contract with the project proponent. The turbine supply contract required a credit for the purchase price of the wind turbines, net of turbine reservation payments. The decision on the extent requires decisions about the degree of participation of the owner. Who would take care of the logistics? Should the provision of a certain number of technicians be the responsibility of the owner? Does the owner have the right to participate in technical studies or case analyses? The level of ownership of the owner must be in line with the overall O&M strategy. For example, taking into account a full resumption of operation after the end of the guarantee requires significant participation of the owner in order to ensure a smooth recovery and allow the owner to operate the wind farm independently. Sometimes, all design and engineering, procurement, construction and assembly services for the entire project are dealt with in a single agreement („Full Wrap Agreement“) under which a single unit is responsible for the execution of the entire project. However, full wrap agreements are manufacturer-specific, not an option with all wind turbine suppliers, and more often apply to wind projects outside the U.S.
