Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind energy, has received a new order1 for the supply of 200 MW at a wind farm located in the state of Coahuila, in northern Mexico.
Under the terms of the agreement, the company will install and commission 95 of its G114-2.1 MW turbines at this development. The turbines are slated for delivery during the first half of this year and the facility is expected to be operational towards the end of 2016.
Ever since it began to do business in Mexico back in 1999, Gamesa has been very active in its capacity as OEM, having installed over 1,700 MW, and as wind farm developer, with a sizeable pipeline at various stages of development. Gamesa, the number one OEM in this market, has recently announced its plans to build a wind tower factory through Windar Renovables, the joint venture with the Daniel Alonso Group. The centre will be located in the state of Tamaulipas and will have annual manufacturing capacity of 500 MW. The construction work is scheduled to begin in December and the factory should be up and running by the end of 2016.
