Gamesa, EDP Renewables sign wind turbine agreement for up to 450 MW

Sponsored by

Gamesa and EDP Renewables have signed a framework agreement for the supply of up to 225 of Gamesa G114-2.0 MW wind turbine generators, for up to 450 MW through 2016. The agreement represents the largest framework agreement for Gamesa’s G114-2.0 MW turbines to date.

“This agreement strengthens the long-standing relationship we have with EDP Renewables globally and in North America,” said Borja Negro, Gamesa North America CEO. “This collaboration with a valued customer demonstrates the appeal of the Gamesa G114 model, which is one of the most efficient wind turbines in the market. The agreement reinforces Gamesa’s presence in the United States and demonstrates our position as a technology leader in the U.S. wind power industry.”

Gamesa’s G114-2.0 MW turbine, the latest evolution in the company’s workhorse 2.0-2.5 MW platform, is designed to yield more power at lower cost at low to medium wind speed sites, reducing the cost of energy.

Gamesa and EDPR previously collaborated on the 400-MW Lone Star Wind Farm near Abilene, Texas. That project went live in June 2008. Gamesa has delivered wind turbines totaling more than 1,500 MW to EDPR worldwide.
