Gamesa will supply the wind turbines that will power the recently announced 208 MW Amazon Wind Farm US East, located in North Carolina.
Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will supervise the supply, transportation, construction, technical guidance and commissioning of 104 G114-2.0 MW turbines at the Amazon Wind Farm US East, located in Perquimans and Pasquotank counties, N.C.
Turbine deliveries are expected to begin in 2016, with the project to be commissioned before the end of 2016.
This order is the largest order for the G114 placed in the U.S. to date. Gamesa has already signed orders for the supply of nearly 1.5 GW in markets such as Sweden, Uruguay, Poland, Brazil and the U.S.
‘This agreement reinforces Gamesa's presence in the U.S. and strengthens the long-standing relationship we have with Iberdrola Renewables globally and in North America,’ says Borja Negro, Gamesa's CEO in the U.S. ‘This large order for our G114-2.0 MW, one of our most competitive models, was possible thanks to our technological leadership, our local know-how and our credibility with our customers.’
With the order, Gamesa will have supplied approximately 2.3 GW of installed capacity to Iberdrola Renewables – its largest shareholder.
