Gamesa signed an agreement to supply 49.3 MW in wind turbine capacity to the Chinese company CGN Wind Energy, for the Chengdingsha wind farm being built in Shandong province.
The order is yet another endorsement of Gamesa in this region of China, where it has already supplied a total 206 MW in turbine capacity to several projects.
The scope of the agreement calls for the installation and commissioning of 25 G97-2.0 MW. The delivery is scheduled for July 2014 and the wind farm is expected to be finished by the end of year.
The G97-2.0 MW class III wind turbine -- designed specifically for low-wind sites -- is a standard-bearer in the sector thanks to its low power density.
The new contract reinforces the commercial relationship between Gamesa and CGN Wind Energy (former Guangdong Nuclear), dating back to the year of 2009. Since then, Gamesa has signed contracts accounting for 106 MW with this utility in Shandong, Liaoning and Heilongjiang provinces.
In all, since 2000, Gamesa has installed more than 3,510 MW in turbine capacity in China and maintains about 900 MW. The company says it also has another 6,000 MW slated for delivery to the country.
