Gamesa, new order for the supply of 84 MW of wind turbines in Brazil

Gamesa has secured a new order from Força Eólica do Brasil (FEB), a consortium made up of Iberdrola and Neoenergia, for the supply of 42 of its G114-2.0 MW wind turbines (84 MW) at three wind farms located in Rio Grande do Norte, in north-eastern Brazil.

Gamesa will supply, transport, install and commission 15 G114-2.0 MW wind turbines at the Santana 1 wind farm, 15 wind turbines of the same make at the Calango 6 facility and another 12 at the Santana 2 complex. These 42 wind turbines, which will be made at Gamesa’s factory in Camaçari (Brazil), are due for delivery during the third quarter of 2016, while the wind farms are slated for commissioning the following quarter.

The G114-2.0 MW is a new wind turbine model designed to yield more power at lower cost at low and medium wind speed sites, which is particularly suitable for the high-wind and low-turbulence conditions encountered in Brazil. The order backlog for this product stands at over 800 MW to date.
