Gamesa has been tapped to supply nine wind turbines to repower the U.K.'s Ovenden Moor Wind Farm – a joint venture between utility E.ON and renewable generator Energy Power Resources Ltd.

Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will supply, install and commission nine of its G80-2.0 MW wind turbines at the Ovenden Moor Wind Farm, located close to the town of Halifax in West Yorkshire County. By replacing the old turbines, the facility – in operation since 1993 – will be refitted with modern technology and produce twice as much power using less than half as many turbines.

The 18 MW repowering project, which will be operational in 2016, will enable the replacement of 23 turbines that are 22 years old.
