Gamesa Awarded 144 MW Supply Contract In Brazil

Leading wind energy developer Gamesa has been awarded a 144 MW contract in Brazil, bringing the company’s total market share in the region up to 1,400 MW.

Gamesa will provide Eolicas do Sul, a subsidiary of the Río Bravo Investimentos y Eletrosul investment fund (in turn a subsidiary of Brazil’s national power company, Eletrobras) with 144 MW in the form of 72 G97-2.0 MW turbines to be installed at six wind farms in the Chio complex currently being developed by the state of Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil.

“This new contract consolidates Gamesa as one of the leading turbine makers in Brazil,” said Edgard Corrochano, South Cone Managing Director, “a position underpinned by the combination of our global technological prowess with local know-how, coupled with our commitment to community development, creating jobs and generating wealth through local supply chain development.”

Additionally, Gamesa will provide the requisite civil engineering work as well as the facility’s operation and maintenance services for 15 years.

Gamesa has made several announcements in the past few months regarding new contracts, including the big news that it had reached the 1,000 MW mark in India in April.

“Thanks to a broad product range, tailored to the market’s specifics, and the company’s experience and know-how as wind farm developer, Gamesa has managed to establish itself as the country’s leading OEM, with a particularly strong position among independent wind energy products,” said Ramesh Kymal, President and Business CEO of Gamesa’s Indian operations.

BTM Consult backed up Gamesa’s claims, placing the company as the top-ranked OEM in India in 2013, reaching a market share of 19%.

Ranked amongst the biggest names in the growing wind energy market, Gamesa is going to keep making a splash on the front page of cleantech websites for a while to come.
