Gamesa continues to reinforce its position in the Chilean market, having recently signed a contract with EDF EN Chile, a subsidiary of the French utility and Spain’s Ibereólica. The agreement is for the supply of 115 MW at a new wind development.
Under the terms, Gamesa will supply, install, and commission 55 of its G114-2.1 MW turbines at phase one of the Cabo Leones I wind complex located in Comuna de Freirina, in the second region of Atacama — one of the Chilean regions with the best wind resources.
Because of the reliability and flexibility of its 2-MW turbine platform, Gamesa is able to offer maximum performance at all kinds of locations and in all manner of wind conditions. The turbines will be delivered by the end of the first semester of 2017. The company will also provide operations and maintenance services at the complex for the next 20 years.
This order is included in the third-quarter order intake figure already disclosed. Gamesa has already installed 628 MW for EDF and another 255 MW for Ibereólica over the years.
