Gamesa wins 68 MW wind power supply contract in Brazil


Gamesa reinforces its position in Brazil, winning a new 68 MW wind power turbine supply contract

Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind energy, continues to strengthen its presence in Brazil, having been awarded a new contract for the supply of 68 MW at the Guirapá complex, built by developer Sequoia Energia in partnership with the utility Companhia Hidroelétrica do São Francisco (CHESF). Including this new agreement, Gamesa has won orders in 2014 for the supply of more than 700 MW in Brazil, a market in which it is one of the leading OEMs.

Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will supply, install and commission 34 of its G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Guirapá complex, located in the state of Bahia.

The wind turbines, which will be made at the company’s factory in Camaçari (Brazil), are scheduled for delivery over the course of 2015, while the facility is expected to be commissioned during the second half of the year. Gamesa will also maintain the turbines for 15 years.
