Gamesa nets 54MW Philippines deal

Spanish turbine manufacturer Gamesa has won a contract to supply and install a 54MW wind farm in the Philippines for developer Alternergy.

The contract is the third for the company in the growing Philippine wind market, after it signed orders for 144MW in recent months.

Gamesa will install 27 of its G90-2.0 MW turbines at the Pililla wind farm, located on the island of Luzón.

The company will build the infrastructure necessary to install the facility, including a new substation, and will also provide the operations and maintenance (O&M) services for five years.

The civil and electrical works will be executed by Gamesa together with the local Philippine consortium CASA, formed by Cendaur, Ati Consulting, Santa Clara and Airnergy.

The wind farm is scheduled for completion during 2015.
