Spanish wind group Gamesa raised its targets for the 2016 full-year after a strong first nine months, leaving it well placed to complete its blockbuster merger with Siemens on a corporate high.

Gamesa now expects full-year sales of at least 4.3GW and underlying earnings before interest and tax (Ebit) of €450m-470m ($490m-511m) – which it said would be the best figures in its history.
