Gamesa has signed a 30 MW contract with Heritage Sustainable Energy for the second and final phase of the Big Turtle wind farm, located in northeast Michigan.
Under the agreement, Gamesa will handle the transportation, installation and commissioning of 14 of its G114-2.1 MW turbines. Delivery of the turbines is set to begin in August 2016, with the facility slated for commissioning in October of that year. The contract also includes operations and maintenance services for 12 years.
The 30 MW phase will mark the completion of the 50 MW Big Turtle wind farm, for which Gamesa already installed 10 G114-2.0 MW turbines in 2014. Gamesa notes Big Turtle was the first introduction of that turbine model into the U.S. market.
