Gamesa has inked its first turbine order in Indonesia, what the Spanish manufacturer calls a “high-potential” wind power market.
Moreover, this order marks the first time Gamesa will install its G114-2.5 MW turbines in Asia-Pacific. These turbines can reach up to 2.625 MW under certain conditions.
Gamesa entered into an agreement with PT UPC Sidrap Bayu Energi – a joint venture owned by UPC Renewables, PT Binatek and AC Energy Holdings – for the supply of 75 MW for the first wind farm to ever be commissioned in the country, according to Gamesa.
Specifically, the company will commission 30 turbines at the Sidrap wind farm, located on the island of Sulawesi. The machines are slated for delivery during the third quarter of this year, and the project is due to be commissioned in the first quarter of 2018.
Besides this maiden order in Indonesia, Gamesa’s Asian footprint also extends to Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Sri Lanka, China and India; the company has installed more than 8 GW in these markets.
