Siemens Gamesa has secured its maiden order from DISA, a distributor of energy products in Spain’s Canary Islands, for a 23.1 MW facility on the island of Tenerife.
Under a turnkey agreement, the company has been commissioned to install 11 of its G114-2.1 MW turbines at the Bermejo and Vera de Abote wind farms, located in the town of Arico.
Construction is already underway, and delivery of the turbines will begin at the end of this year. Because it is an engineering, procurement and construction contract, Siemens Gamesa will also provide all the infrastructure needed to install and operate the facility, which is scheduled for commissioning during the second half of 2018.
This project brings the Canary Islands closer to the Spanish Ministry of Industry’s target of lifting the region’s installed wind base to 436 MW by 2018, notes Siemens Gamesa.
