Aware of the challenges faced by substation operators and owners and with the quest to help improve their business outcomes, GE’s Grid Solutions has launched Flexible Service Agreements (FlexSA) portfolio offering.
Flexible Service Agreements (FlexSA) are designed and performed by GE’s specialized and certified service teams of product and field engineers using Asset Performance Management (APM) systems . The Operations and Maintenance (O&M) services provided improve the substations’ operational performance while reducing the financial risks for operators.
Flexible Service Agreements deliver advanced planning and guaranteed operational outcomes, as an option, covering medium and high-voltage substation assets from GE or other OEMs, as well as protection, control, and automation systems.
Each flexible agreement is tailored considering asset conditions and criticality, location, customer expertise and resource availability. It can be applied across power system applications such as Renewable Generation, Thermal Generation, Transmission & Distribution, Industries and Infrastructure.

Recently the consortium formed by GE Renewable Energy’s Grid Solutions and Sembcorp Marine was awarded the full contract from Sofia Offshore Wind Farm Limited to supply a state-of-the-art high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission system for Sofia, one of the world’s largest offshore wind farm projects. As the consortium leader, GE’s Grid Solutions is responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the system’s two HVDC converter stations capable of transmitting 1,320 megawatts (MW) of power at 320 kilovolts (kV). Both offshore and onshore substation’s primary equipment will be covered by a Flexible Service Agreement for online inspections powered by EnergyAPM connected to the eLumina Control System. The offshore converter station will be the most powerful ever built and will be installed 220 kilometers from shore, which will also make it the most remote.
