Gamesa has won two new contracts totaling 112 MW in China: The first is with CGN Wind Energy, a subsidiary of China's General Nuclear Power Group, for the supply of 64 MW, and the second is with Everbright, a subsidiary of Chinese renewable energy specialist Everbright Group, for the supply of 48 MW.
The scope of the agreement with CGN encompasses the supply and installation of 32 of Gamesa's G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Yangchajie wind complex, located in the province of Yunnan. The turbines are slated for delivery in January 2015, and the facility is expected to be commissioned in March 2015.
Gamesa notes this is the third agreement it has reached with CGN so far this year; the companies have already signed contracts covering the supply of another 150 MW, 100 MW of which is for the first phase of the Yangchajie wind farm.
Separately, the agreement with Everbright includes the supply and installation of 24 G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Zhaojiashan wind farm, located in the province of Shanxi. Those turbines are to be delivered in March of next year, and the project is expected to be fully commissioned by May.
This is the second wind project being developed by Everbright. The company recently tapped Gamesa to supply the turbines for its first project, a 48 MW wind farm also located in the province of Shanxi.
Including these new agreements, Gamesa says it has won contracts for the supply of over 350 MW in China this year.
