Online PR News – 28-October-2010 – – Gamesa, a global leader in the manufacture and maintenance of wind turbines and a wind farm developer, has obtained new contracts in China to supply 197 turbines with combined capacity of 251 MW. Gamesa's wind turbine division signed the contracts with two of its largest customers in China, Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power and Datang Renewable Power, and a new customer, Henan Weite Wind Power (a mid-sized IPP, or independent power producer). The deals underscore Gamesa’s commercial strategy for expanding into new markets and customer segments.
Gamesa will supply Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power with a total of 48 units of its G90-2.0 MW turbine in 2010, representing combined capacity of 96 MW.
The agreement with Datang Renewable Power calls for Gamesa to supply 25 of its G90-2.0 MW turbines, with combined capacity of 50 MW, to the Chinese power company's wind farms in Liaoning Province.
Furthermore, Gamesa will supply Henan Weite Wind Power with a total of 124 units of its G58-850 kW turbine, representing combined capacity of 105 MW. The turbines are destined for a wind energy development known as Henan Weite Wind Power Project, funded by China Climate Change framework loan from the European Investment Bank, which will have annual capacity of 200 million kWh and will allow the Chinese company to meet the renewable energy generation targets stipulated in its five-year plan.
News of these latest contracts comes one month after Gamesa announced that it signed strategic agreements in China to develop wind farms and supply 1,315.3 MW of turbine capacity between 2010 and 2013.
