Gamesa has signed two new contracts in China, one to supply 50 MW to Hebei Construction & Investment Group (HCIG) and another to supply 42 MW to Chinese wind farm developer UPC. The scope of the agreement with HCIG includes the installation and commissioning of 25 of Gamesa’s G97-2.0 MW model wind turbines at the Nandianziliang wind complex located in the province of Shanxi, in northern China.
The wind turbines are expected to be delivered in May 2015, with the commissioning of the facility due to take place during the third quarter of this year. Since 2008, Gamesa has supplied 180 MW to HCIG, one of the country’s ten most important wind power operators.
Elsewhere, the contract with UPC includes the supply and installation of 21 G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Huangyan wind farm in the province of Zhejiang, in the east of the country. These wind turbines will be delivered in April of this year and the wind farm is expected to be commissioned as from June. This is the first agreement to have been signed between Gamesa and Chinese wind farm developer UPC.
