Having secured its first order since the country’s latest energy sector reforms, Gamesa is demonstrating its strategic commitment to the Spanish market.
Specifically, the company is building a 20 MW wind farm for Villar Mir Energia, the Villar Mir Group’s energy division. The wind farm will be financed by Triodos Bank, an institution that specializes in financing renewable energy projects.
Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will supply 10 of its G114-2.0 MW turbines at the Valiente wind farm, located in the province of Huesca, over the course of next year.
Gamesa will also carry out the related construction work, including civil engineering and electric infrastructure, and operate and maintain the facility, which is expected to be commissioned during the first quarter of 2018.
With a market share of over 50%, Gamesa touts itself as Spain’s No. 1 original equipment manufacturer. Specifically, it has installed 12 GW nationwide to date and currently services more than 9 GW of turbines. In addition, nearly 4,000 people work for Gamesa in Spain.
