Gamesa has signed an agreement with state-owned utility Vattenfall for the supply of 36 MW in Sweden.
Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will supply and install 18 of its G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Hoge Vag wind farm, located in the municipality of Kristianstad in the Swedish county of Skane. The turbines will be equipped with Gamesa's MaxPower technology, which the company says increases the turbines' nominal capacity from 2.0 MW to 2.1 MW, thereby boosting the facility's output. The wind turbines are scheduled for delivery during the first half of 2015, and the facility is slated for commissioning toward the end of next year.
Gamesa notes this is the first supply order from Vattenfall. Ricardo Chocarro, CEO of Gamesa Europe and RoW, says, ‘This agreement with Vattenfall, one of the world's leading energy players, represents a vote of confidence in our technology solutions. Moreover, this contract marks a fresh milestone in our product and sales strategy in northern Europe and, specifically, in Sweden, one of our priority markets."
