Spanish wind energy giant Gamesa has announced that it will supply 200 MW worth of wind turbines to a project being developed in Mexico.
In a brief announcement made on the company’s website, Gamesa revealed that it has been awarded a contract to supply 200 MW to a wind project that is being developed in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila. Gamesa will supply 95 of its G114-2.1 MW turbines to the project, and has also been contracted to install and commission the turbines.
Gamesa expects delivery to be during the first half of 2016, with completion of the facility expected to be toward the end of the year.
The company was recently awarded a 130 MW order in December, to supply 65 of its G114-2.0 MW wind turbines to developers Mexico Power Group and First Reserve for the construction of La Bufa, set to be located in the Mexican state of Zacatecas, in Central Mexico.
Gamesa has already supplied over 1,700 MW worth of wind turbines to Mexico, with business in-country dating back to 1999. Gamesa has long been the number one OEM in Mexico, a position the company takes seriously and maintains through supply and its own development. Gamesa also recently announced plans to develop a wind tower factory in Mexico, through Windar Renovables, a joint venture with the Daniel Alonso Group. The new factory will be located in the eastern state of Tamaulipas, and will have an annual manufacturing capacity of approximately 500 MW. Construction work on the project is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
