Gamesa collaborates on distributed wind power project

Langhorne, Pa., June 19, 2012 — Gamesa Technology Corp., Inc. and its partner Harvest the Wind Network are jointly working on a community wind project to help HARBEC Plastics, a western New York manufacturer, offset retail energy rates and zero-out carbon emissions.

This is Gamesa's first distributed wind project with Harvest the Wind. The two companies signed an agreement in March that makes Harvest the Wind a primary distributor of Gamesa's family of G5X-850 kW wind turbines for community and distributed wind energy projects.

Harvest the Wind's regional partner, Sustainable Energy Developments, designed, permitted and will install the G58 turbine on a 55-meter tower at the Wayne Industrial Sustainability Park, where HARBEC is located. SED is a regional distributed wind pioneer and quality leader in the Northeast U.S.

HARBEC Plastics will use one of Gamesa's G58-850 kW turbines to supply electricity directly to its plant in Ontario, N.Y., located about 25 miles east of Rochester.

With this new turbine, HARBEC is adding additional on-site wind power to its existing highly efficient electricity generating technology, a combined heat and power plant.

Gamesa's G5X-850 kW platform, renowned for its outstanding reliability and excellent output, is a perfect fit for community and distributed wind energy projects, and is among one of the fastest-growing segments in the U.S. wind industry.

Construction is set to begin in September 2012, and the project is scheduled to be completed and online by the end of the year.
