Gamesa has signed two new contracts in China, one to supply 50MW to Hebei Construction & Investment Group (HCIG) and another to supply 42MW to the Chinese wind farm developer UPC.
The scope of the agreement with HCIG encompasses the supply, installation and commissioning of 25 of Gamesa’s G97-2.0MW turbines, at the Nandianziliang wind complex located in the province of Shanxi, in northern China. The turbines are slated for delivery in May 2015, while the facility is expected to be commissioned by the third quarter of this year. Since 2008, Gamesa has supplied 180MW to HCIG, one of the top 10 wind power operators in China.
Elsewhere, the contract with UPC includes the supply, installation and commissioning of 21 G97-2.0MW turbines at the Huangyan wind farm in the province of Zhejiang, in eastern China. These turbines are to be delivered in April of this year and the project is expected to be fully commissioned by the third quarter of 2015. This is the first agreement reached between Gamesa and the wind farm developer UPC.
These two new contracts, signed during the last quarter of 2014, reinforce Gamesa’s commercial strategy in China, where the company won contracts for the supply of 450MW during the course of the year.
