Gamesa has been awarded a 68 MW order for the Guirapa wind complex in Brazil. Developer Sequoia Energia, in partnership with utility Companhia Hidroeletrica do Sao Francisco, is building the project.
Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will supply, install and commission 34 of its G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Guirapa complex, located in the state of Bahia. The wind turbines, which will be made at the company's factory in Camacari, Brazil, are scheduled for delivery over the course of 2015. The facility is expected to be commissioned during the second half of next year, and Gamesa will maintain the turbines for 15 years.
Gamesa says Brazil is one of its priority markets, having won orders to supply more than 700 MW in the country year-to-date.
