Gamesa has further consolidated its Chinese presence with two new supply contracts. The first is a new contract with CGN Wind Energy, a subsidiary of China’s General Nuclear Power Group, for the supply of 64 MW; the second is with Everbright, a subsidiary of Chinese renewable energy specialist Everbright Group, for the supply of 48 MW.
The scope of the agreement with CGN encompasses the supply and installation of 32 of Gamesa’s G97-2.0 MW turbines, specifically configured for high-altitude locations, at the Yangchajie wind complex located in the province of Yunnan, in southeast China. The turbines are slated for delivery in January 2015, while the facility is expected to be commissioned in March 2015.
This is the third agreement reached between Gamesa and CGN so far this year, the parties having already signed contracts covering the supply of another 150 MW in 2014, 100 MW of which for the first phase of the Yangchajie wind farm.
Elsewhere, the agreement with Everbright includes the supply and installation of 24 G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Zhaojiashan wind farm in the province of Shanxi, in western Peking. These turbines are to be delivered in March of next year and the project is expected to be fully commissioned by May. This is the second wind project being developed by Everbright, which also selected recently Gamesa to supply the wind turbines for its first wind farm (48 MW), also located in the province of Shanxi.
