Gamesa Awarded 130 MW Mexico Turnkey Wind Farm

Spanish wienergy -wind_energynd turbine manufacturer Gamesa has been awarded a contract to build a 130 MW wind farm in Mexico.

The project is being built under a turnkey arrangement — allowing it to be sold on as a completed project upon completion. Gamesa was contracted to deliver 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 is set to deliver the turbines and commission construction within 2016, and will also provide operation and maintenance services over a long-term span of the wind farm’s operation. Upon completion of the project, the electricity generated by the wind farm will be supplied exclusively to Volkswagen’s factories in the nearby cities of Puebla and Silao.

According to Gamesa’s press release announcing the award of the contract, the company has installed over 1,700 MW in Mexico as an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), and another 700 MW as its own wind farm developer — with a sizable pipeline to boot. These stats place Gamesa as the number one OEM in the market, and has led to the company announcing that it will build a wind tower factory in the state of Tamaulipas in a joint venture through Windar Renovables with the Daniel Alonso Group.
