Gamesa has sold two wind farm developments totaling 82 MW to EMV, a Greek subsidiary of EREN. Gamesa will build the projects under a turnkey arrangement.
Under the terms of the agreement, the company will handle, in coordination with EREN's local team, the construction of both wind farms, located in the region of Sterea Ellada, Greece.
At the 40 MW Ptoon wind farm, Gamesa will install nine of its G87-2.0 MW turbines and 11 of its G97-2.0 MW machines. At the 42 MW Maristi wind farm, the company will supply 21 of its G87-2.0 MW turbines. The company will also provide the facilities' operations and maintenance services for a period of 10 years.
Additionally, Gamesa will build the infrastructure needed to install and operate the facilities, including an electric substation at each development. Both wind farms are slated for completion by the end of next year.
This is the second agreement reached by Gamesa with EREN, having already closed last year the sale of a 25.5 MW wind farm located in the Viotia prefecture, a facility that was also developed and built by Gamesa.Â Â
Gamesa says its presence in Greece dates to 2000. Since then, in its capacity as developer, it has built nearly 90 MW and has a pipeline of almost 600 MW at varying stages of development. In addition, the company says it has installed nearly 180 MW of its turbines in Greece, a market in which it also maintains 118 MW.
