Gamesa, a global technology provider of wind energy, has achieved another company milestone by signing its first contract with Canadian-based energy company, Enbridge. The agreement is for the 103-MW New Creek wind farm being developed in the state of West Virginia.
Gamesa will handle the transport, installation, and commissioning of the new facility, and will supply 45 of its G90-2.1 MW turbines and four of its G90-2.0 MW turbines. The turbines are slated for delivery over the course of 2016, and the project is expected to be up and running by the end of next year.
Gamesa will also operate and maintain the New Creek wind farm for five years.
This agreement marks the start of the firm’s business relationship with Enbridge, a leading North American energy delivery company with a renewable-energy portfolio of nearly 2,000 MW. It also reinforces Gamesa’s strategy in the U.S. where its solid and well-diversified customer base has translated into the installation of 4,150 MW to date.
In the first nine months of this year, the U.S. represented 11% of Gamesa’s sales volumes (by MW).
