Gamesa Sending 30 MW of Wind Turbines to Italy
October 4th, 2012 by James Ayre
One of the global leaders in the wind energy market, Gamesa, will be supplying new wind turbines with a total capacity of 30 MW to a new wind farm that Eolica Erchie is developing in Italy.
This order is the first that Gamesa has signed with Toshiba Europe T&D (EPC Contractor worldwide). Located in the Province of Brindisi, in Puglia Region, the installation, which is expected to begin construction before the end of the year, will feature 15 G90-2.0 MW wind turbines.
“The wind farm will reach an annual production of 69 GWh, equivalent to about 12,900 tons of petroleum (TEP) per year and prevents the emission into the atmosphere of about 30,300 tonnes of CO2 annually.”
Gamesa is currently one of the leading suppliers of wind turbines in Italy, having installed over 1,506 MW since its beginning in that market in 2002.
