Gamesa, a wind energy technology company, says it has been awarded a contract for the supply of 99 MW for a wind farm in the south-central U.S.
According to the company, this U.S. wind farm will utilize 48 G114-2.0 MW and G114-2.1 MW turbines. Under the contract, Gamesa will deliver and commission all of the turbines, which are slated for delivery in 2017.
The project is expected to go into commercial operation later that same year, the company notes.
Gamesa says it has approximately 4,800 MW in firm orders for G114 turbines across the globe, which are optimized for multiple-wind-speed sites. Completion of the project, along with others on order or under construction, will bring Gamesa’s installed capacity in the U.S. to over 5,000 MW.
