Gamesa in 128MW Brazil deal

Gamesa has landed a 128MW order in Brazil and a 10MW deal in Turkey, both coming from wind subsidiaries of Spanish compatriot Gestamp.

In Brazil, where Gamesa has notched orders of more than 1GW in the past two years, the Spanish wind-turbine maker will supply, install and maintain 64 of its G97-2.0MW machines across five wind farms in Rio Grande do Norte state.

The wind farms included in Gamesa's announcement are:

  • 20MW Santana I
  • 30MW Santana II
  • 30MW Santana III
  • 28MW Lanchinha
  • 20MW Pelado

Gamesa will also handle foundation civil works, and the deal includes a 10-year O&M contract at the Brazilian projects, the company says.

Latin America – and especially Brazil – has become a central pillar of Gamesa’s recovery, having already installed more than 390MW in the country.

Gamesa also today announced a five-turbine order for its G90-2.0MW machine from Gestamp in Turkey, for the Adares wind farm.

Gestamp is developing the Adares in Izmir province alongside local partner Faik Celik.
