Ingeteam expands O&M operations


Spanish electrical engineering group Ingeteam has signed four new PV operation and maintenance contracts in Panama, the United Kingdom, Honduras and Uruguay, opening new markets for the company in the latter two countries.

Ingeteam’s latest deals expand its operations in Latin America, where the Bilbao-based company has become a market leader in both O&M services, with 1.9 GW, and with regard to the number of installed PV inverters and wind power converters.

Ingeteam last year opened a new subsidiary in Panama, where the company was already working on the country's first wind farm – reportedly the largest in Central America — carrying out O&M work on the wind turbines and substation. It is now overseeing O&M services for a PV plant in Veraguas, located in northern Panama.

With the entry of Ingeteam Service into Uruguay and Honduras, which have made major commitment to renewable energy use, the company said it was now strategically positioned in the renewable energies sector, offering an integrated maintenance service to the market with the possibility of offering global solutions to its customers. It will now handle O&M services for PV plants in Cholueta, Honduras, and Salto, Uruguay. Ingeteam has likewise supplied protection and control equipment for substations at wind and PV farms in both countries. In Uruguay, it has also worked with the state-owned UTE power company since 2004.
