Gamesa 202MW Iberdrola US deal

Spanish turbine manufacturer Gamesa has signed a deal with Iberdrola to equip the 202MW Baffin wind farm in the US state of Texas.

Gamesa will supply its Spanish compatriot with 101 of its G97-2.0 MW for the project in southern Texas.

The plant is due for commissioning towards the end of next year, with the turbines beginning to arrive in mid-2014.

Iberdrola’s final decision to proceed with Baffin is still contingent on approval from the local authorities, said a statement.

The developer is “well-positioned” to use the turbines at other possible US projects if necessary, it added.

Baffin is due to be the last phase of Iberdrola's 606MW  Peñascal complex.

The order is the largest single deal yet for the G97-2.0 MW, Gamesa said.
