Spanish wind energy giant Gamesa has announced two new contracts for projects in Brazil and India, totaling 245.8 MW.
One of India’s leading independent power producers, ReNew Power signed Gamesa to provide 20 of its G97-2.0 MW class S turbines, which are “purposed-designed for the Indian market,” to build a 40 MW turnkey wind farm in India.
Gamesa will install the 20 turbines at the Lingsagur wind farm, located in Karnataka, and will also handle all of the infrastructure needed to install and operate the 40 MW project. Gamesa will also provide long-term operations and maintenance for the project, following the project’s expected commissioning in March 2016.
This project also continues to strengthen Gamesa’s relationship with ReNew Power, which now sits at a firm supply of 102.65 MW across the Indian provinces of Karnataka and Maharaja.
However, in contrast, Gamesa’s Brazilian order marks its first contract with Votorantim Energia, the energy arm of Votorantim Group. Gamesa will provide 98 G114-2.0 MW turbines for seven separate wind farms in the east-Brazilian state of Piaui,which will be equipped with Gamesa’s MaxPower technology, which is designed to increase an individual turbine’s speed to boost it’s rated power from 2.0 MW to 2.1 MW, thereby creating an overall cumulative capacity of 205.8 MW.
Gamesa will also maintain the seven wind farms for the net five years, following scheduled commissioning by late 2017.
