Gamesa to supply wind turbines for its first Canadian project

A 10-MW wind farm planned for Highgate, Ontario, near the northern shore of Lake Erie between Chatham-Kent and London, will be the first Canadian project by wind energy firm Gamesa Technology Corp. The company will supply five turbines for the Gesner Wind Farm, which is being developed by Saturn Power. The off-take will be purchased by the Ontario Power Authority. The project, about 70 miles east of Detroit, Mich., will feature Gamesa G97 2.0 MW turbines on 90-meter towers.

Gamesa introduced the turbine in 2011 and has secured contracts for 356 MW, all in the second half of the year. The turbine is intended for low-wind sites and features a new aerodynamic blade tip, among other features.
