Gamesa, a global technology OEM in wind energy, saw its firm order intake rise above 3,300 MW in 2014-boosted by two new order wins in Brazil totaling 150 MW in the fourth quarter of the year.
The first order, from Serveng Energias Renovavéis encompasses the supply, transportation, installation and commissioning of 54 G114-2.0 MW turbines in the towns of Pedra Grande, and Parazinho in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil. These turbines are slated for supply over the course of 2016 and 2017, with the facilities due for commissioning by the end of 2017. These turbines will be equipped with Gamesa’s MaxPower technology, which increases their nominal capacity from 2.0 MW to 2.1 MW, thereby boosting these 54 turbines’ output from 108 MW to 113.4 MW.
The second order, placed by local utility Companhia Hidroelétrica do São Francisco (Chesf) and developer Sequoia Energia, covers the supply of 13 of Gamesa’s G97-2.0 MW make at the Papagaio and Coqueirinho wind farms and 8 G97-2.0 MW make at the Tamanduá Mirim two wind farm, located in Pindaí, in the state of Bahia, to the east of the country. These turbines are scheduled to be commissioned during the first half of 2016.
With a track record stretching back 21 years and installation of over 30,000 MW in 50 countries under its belt, Gamesa has established itself as a world technology leader in the wind power industry. Its end-to-end value chain presence encompasses wind turbine design, manufacture, installation and operations and management (over 20,000 MW). Gamesa is also a global benchmark in the development, construction and sale of wind farms, having installed 6,400 MW worldwide.
