Gamesa reinforces its presence in the US- enters framework agreement for the supply of up to 450 MW to EDPR.

Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind energy, has signed a framework agreement with EDP Renovaveis (EDPR) for the supply of up to 450 MW through 2016 in the US.

Under terms of the agreement, Gamesa will supply up to 225 of Gamesa G114-2.0 MW wind turbine generators in wind projects that the EDP Renovaveis (EDPR) plans to build in the country. This agreement represents the largest contract for Gamesa's G114-2.0 MW turbines to date.   

"This agreement strengthens the long-standing relationship we have with EDPR globally and in North America," Gamesa North America CEO Borja Negro said. "This collaboration with a valued customer demonstrates the appeal of the Gamesa G114 model, which is one of the most efficient wind turbines in the market.  The agreement reinforces Gamesa's presence in the United States and demonstrates our position as a technology leader in the United States wind power industry."

Gamesa and EDPR previously collaborated on the 400-MW Lone Star Wind Farm complex in Texas. Gamesa has delivered wind turbines totaling more than 1,500 MW to EDPR worldwide.

The Gamesa G114-2.0 MW: maximum performance at medium and low wind speeds

The Gamesa G114-2.0 MW wind turbine is a standard-bearer in the sector thanks to its low power density. This new product contributes to one of the company's top priorities: significantly cutting the cost of energy of the products designed by Gamesa for medium and low wind speed sites.

With a rotor spanning 114 metres, the new turbine's sweep area is 38% greater than that of the G97-2.0 MW, while it produces 20% more energy a year. The G114-2.0 MW wind turbine, designed to maximise the performance of turbines installed in less windy sites, is part of the company's 2.0 MW platform, whose track record encompasses the installation of more than 15 GW worldwide and an availability record of over 98%.
