Gamesa has received a new order for the supply of 200 MW at an unidentified wind farm located in the state of Coahuila, in northern Mexico.
Under the terms of the agreement, the company will install and commission 95 of its G114-2.1 MW turbines. The machines are slated for delivery during the first half of this year, and the facility is expected to be operational toward the end of 2016.
Ever since it began to do business in Mexico back in 1999, Gamesa says it has been very active in its capacity as OEM, having installed over 1.7 GW, and as wind farm developer, with a sizeable pipeline at various stages of development.
The company adds it recently announced its plans to build a Mexican wind tower factory through Windar Renovables, the joint venture with the Daniel Alonso Group. The center will be located in the state of Tamaulipas and have annual manufacturing capacity of 500 MW. The construction work is scheduled to begin in December, and the factory should be up and running by year’s end.
