Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind energy, has been contracted to supply 52 MW to ScottishPower Renewables, Iberdrola’s UK subsidiary. The agreement is for two developments, including the expansion of the 30-MW Hare Hill facility and the 22-MW Glen App wind farm.
For the expansion of the Hare Hill wind farm, which is close to the Scottish town of New Cumnock, Gamesa will install and commission 35 G52-850 kW turbines with heights ranging between 44 and 65 meters. The turbines will be delivered and the facility commissioned during the second half of this year.
This project’s specific height restrictions make the G52-850 kW turbines, now only made on demand in ad-hoc situations, ideally suited for this wind farm.
The second order is for 11 G90-2.0 MW turbines at the Glen App development, which is close to the town of Cairnryan in eastern Scotland. These turbines will be delivered during the third quarter of this year and the wind farm will be commissioned in January 2017.
