Gamesa has announced a deal to give 48 megawatts (MW) of wind power to the Longyuan Group in the Fujian Provincial city of Jiangkou in China.
The deal allows the Spanish wind turbine manufacturer to provide 24 of its G90-2.0MW & G87 2.0 wind turbines for the wind farm in the Jiangkou starting in October. Design improvements to the G87-2.0MW will allow for higher energy production, up to 8% compared to the former G80-2.0MW wind turbines.
Longyuan Group and Gamesa have teamed up to provide a total of 1728 MW in past projects, the release said.
Meanwhile, since 2000, Gamesa has put up 3,000 wind turbines across China, while supporting up to 3,000 MW in wind energy across the emerging market.
