Spanish wind turbine maker Gamesa said Feb. 2 that it will install 95 of its G114-2.1 MW turbines at a wind farm being built in Mexico.
The 200-MW wind farm is located in the state of Coahuila in northern Mexico. Under the terms of the agreement, the turbines are slated for delivery during the first half of this year and the facility is expected to be operational towards the end of 2016.
Ever since it began to do business in Mexico back in 1999, Gamesa said itr has been very active in its capacity as OEM, having installed over 1,700 MW, and as wind farm developer, with a sizeable pipeline at various stages of development. Gamesa recently announced its plans to build a wind tower factory through Windar Renovables, the joint venture with the Daniel Alonso Group. It will be located in the state of Tamaulipas and will have annual manufacturing capacity of 500 MW. The construction work is scheduled to begin in December and the factory should be up and running by the end of 2016.
