Gamesa, a global technology provider in wind energy, has secured its first order from fast-growing electricity producer Voltalia. Gamesa will supply 13 of its G114-2.1 MW for a total of 27.3 MW at Voltalia’s Vila Acre wind facility in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, in North-Eastern Brazil.
The G114-2.1 MW turbines are ideal for Brazilian conditions, which include constant, low-turbulence winds. The Brazilian order for this turbine has already exceeded the 1-GW mark, making in one of the most contracted Gamesa products in 2015 energy auctions.
According to MAKE Consultancy, Gamesa tripled its presence in the Brazilian market in 2015, increasing its market share from 10% in 2014 to 29%. Gamesa recently merged with Siemens’ wind business.
