Gamesa, a leader in wind turbine design, has entered into an agreement with Terna Energy for the supply of 74 of its G114-2.1 MW turbines (155 MW) at a wind complex being developed in Texas. The order is included in the third-quarter order intake figure already disclosed, which amounted to 1,090 MW.
Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will deliver and commission the project and supply operation and maintenance services for five years. The turbines are slated for delivery in 2017, with commissioning to be completed the same year. Optimized for low and medium wind speed sites, the turbine model is one of Gamesa’s most competitive to date.
The company has a long and established presence in the United States. Completion of the project, along with others under construction, will tip Gamesa’s total installed capacity in the United States past 5,000 MW.
