Gamesa has received two new orders from China for the supply of 50 MW to Hebei Construction & Investment Group (HCIG) and 48 MW to Fujian Energy.
Under the terms of the contract signed with HCIG, Gamesa will supply, install and commission 25 of its G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Senjitu II wind farm, located in southwest Peking. The wind turbines are scheduled for delivery this year.
With Fujian Energy, Gamesa will supply, install and commission 24 of its G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Dingyanshan wind farm, located in the province of Fujian. These turbines are custom-designed to withstand the coastal area's extreme winds. The turbines will be delivered during the fourth quarter. The project will be commissioned by the end of the year, Gamesa notes.
Gamesa's presence in China dates back 15 years. To date, the company has installed more than 3.6 GW, with more than 960 MW under maintenance. China accounted for 9% of Gamesa's total megawatts sold in 2014.
