Gamesa sells Greek wind farm

Gamesa has sold its 86% stake in the 25.5MW Kithaironas wind farm in Greece to a company founded by the former chairman and chief executive of EDF Energies Nouvelles.

Gamesa developed and built the wind farm in the central region of Viotia, using 30 of its G52-850kW turbines.

Active in the Greek market for 15 years, Gamesa has developed nearly 90MW in the country – and seen nearly 200MW of its turbines installed across various projects.

The Spanish wind group claims to have a project portfolio totalling nearly 550MW in Greece, which has less than 2GW of wind capacity installed.

Kithaironas was sold to a subsidiary of Eren, a wind and solar generator founded by Paris Mouratoglou and David Corchia, respectively the former chairman and CEO of French renewables powerhouse EDF Energies Nouvelles.

Last month Eren joined EDF Energies Nouvelles in forming a joint venture focused on solar energy in India.
