Thanks to a pair of fourth-quarter order wins in Brazil, turbine maker Gamesa saw its firm order intake exceed 3.3 GW in 2014.
The first order – placed by Serveng Energias Renovaveis – calls for the supply, transportation, installation and commissioning of 54 of the firm's G114-2.0 MW turbines at several farms within the Uniao dos Ventos complex located in the towns of Pedra Grande and Parazinho in the state of Rio Grande do Norte in northeastern Brazil. The turbines are slated for supply over the course of 2016 and 2017, with commissioning set for the end of 2017.
Local utility Companhia Hidroeletrica do Sao Francisco and developer Sequoia Energia placed the second order, Gamesa notes. It covers the supply of 13 of Gamesa's G97-2.0 MW make at the Papagaio and Coqueirinho wind farms and eight of the G97-2.0 MW make at the Tamandua Mirim 2 wind farm, located in Pindai, in the state of Bahia, in theÂ eastern part of the country. These turbines are scheduled to be commissioned in the first half of 2016.
