Gamesa gets 98MW Brazil orders

Spanish wind turbine manufacturer Gamesa has tied up a total of 98MW of orders from two customers in Brazil.

Gamesa will supply 68MW of its G97-2.0 MW machines to CER for the Assuruá 2, 5 and 7 wind farms, part of the Xique-Xique wind complex.

It also signed to deliver 15 turbines of the same model to Ventos dos Guarás Energias Renováveis for its Ventos dos Guarás 1 wind farm in the Morrinhos complex.

All the projects are in the northeastern state of Bahia and due for completion by the end of 2015.

Gamesa will supply O&M services at both for a 15-year term.

The Spanish group said the latest orders mean it has firm commitments  for the supply of 1,394MW to Brazil, where it already has 452MW installed.
