Gamesa has expanded its foothold in the Chinese wind market with a new agreement to supply 200 MW to Huadian New Energy Development Co. The deal calls for the supply and installation of G90-2 MW wind turbines this year and next in China's northern Inner Mongolia province.
Gamesa, which operates in China as both a turbine manufacturer and a wind farm developer, has installed nearly 3,000 turbines at more than 60 sites in the country since 2000. The company currently has six manufacturing plants in Tianjin and Jilin provinces, and reports that it is about to finish construction of its new factory in Inner Mongolia. Gamesa employs 1,200 people in China.Â
As a farm developer, Gamesa's joint project portfolio – which contains projects the company is working on in tandem with Chinese power companies – totals 2,900 MW. China accounted for one-fifth of Gamesa's total sales in June, the company says.
