Wind energy technology manufacturer Gamesa will provide 100 megawatts of wind turbines to CGN Wind Energy for a project in southeast China's Yunnan province. Gamesa entered into the supply agreement with CGN Wind Energy, a subsidiary of China's General Nuclear Power Group, for the Yangchajie wind farm. The project will consist of 50 turbines that have the power production capacity of 2 MW each.
"This agreement marks a very important step in Gamesa's sales and product strategy in China, where we recently announced another two contracts, one for Fujian for 48 MW and one for CGN for 49.3 MW," José Antonio Miranda, CEO for Gamesa in China, said in a statement. "The Chinese wind market offers spectacular growth prospects."
The wind turbines for the Yangchajie wind complex is designed for high altitude and low temperature conditions.
Gamesa's supply agreement with CGN Wind Energy is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2014. Gamesa is also delivering 100 MW of wind turbines for the second phase of the Yangchajie wind farm project, which is being built in 2015.
