WORRY-FREE WITH A GARANT CONTRACT

Thomas Kelso is a busy man. In addition to running a farm, he is involved in the world of wind, and owns two Vestas wind turbines. As Thomas says: ‘It was a few years ago that I first came into contact with Rengineers. At the time, there were various options with regard to buying second-hand wind turbines from the Netherlands, Denmark, or Germany. Following a full refurbishment, the turbines would be made fully operational in Northern Ireland.’

 

‘Ik zag een kans om in deze branche te stappen besloot om aan dergelijke projecten deel te nemen. Daarnaast startte ik met het adviseren van collega’s ​​die geïnteresseerd waren in het installeren van een tweedehands windturbine. ‘

It was the beginning of a successful market.

‘We contacted Rengineers for the installation and commissioning of the turbines we had sold. Our choice for Rengineers came from the fact that there are only very few businesses in Northern Ireland equipped with the same knowledge, expertise and experience as Rengineers,’ says Thomas. ‘We are thrilled with the excellent service Rengineers has provided, and have recommended them to our clients.’

“We are thrilled with the excellent service Rengineers has provided; we are happy to recommend them to our contacts”

The decision to install my own turbines was a relatively easy one. Particularly due to the excellent support provided by Rengineers – making a logical next step to also take out a Rengineers Garant Contract for both wind turbines following their commissioning.

Rengineers Garant Contract

The Guarantee-contract is an all-in contract that includes insurance, wear, and damages.

‘It was the perfect maintenance contract. Rengineers assumes all risks at a fixed, annual fee. All costs are included, even those of cranes, components (including those that are subject to wear). The contract essentially includes everything needed to ensure that the turbines deliver an optimum performance.

Rengineers even guarantees that, if a turbine should be out of commission for longer than 48 hours, we are compensated for any foregone income.

 

Local service organisation

‘I am delighted that Rengineers has decided to expand their business to Norther Ireland. There is a number of new competing businesses currently on the market, but they lack the knowledge and experience that Rengineers brings to the table.’

Rengineers currently employs a highly qualified team of local engineers, fully equipped service vans, and a component warehouse in Northern Ireland.

‘I definitely recommend the Rengineers service team to anyone looking to optimise the yield on their wind turbine, risk free.’
