Gamesa has received its first order from Germany energy provider DEW 21. Specifically, it has been contracted to build the 12-MW Horst wind farm located in the town of Schneverdingen, in Lower Saxony, under a turnkey arrangement. Given the fact that it is a turnkey contract, Gamesa will handle all the tasks necessary to develop the wind farm, from obtaining the required licences and permits to performing the civil engineering and electrical wiring work needed to build and operate the project, while also transporting, installing and commissioning the wind turbines.
The Horst wind farm will be equipped with six G97-2.0 MW turbines, slated for delivery from July; the wind farm’s commissioning is scheduled for November 2015. Once operational, the facility will generate enough electricity to supply over 8,500 German households.
