Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind energy, has achieved another milestone in its US sales strategy, signing its first contract with Canada’s Enbridge, specifically for the supply of 103 MW to the New Creek wind farm being developed in the state of West Virginia.
Gamesa will handle the transport, installation and commissioning of 45 of its G90-2.1 MW turbines and four of its G90-2.0 MW turbines at the facility. The turbines are slated for delivery over the course of 2016 and the project is expected to be up and running by the end of next year. In addition, the company will operate and maintain the wind farm for five years.
This agreement marks the start of the firm’s business relationship with Enbridge, a leading North American energy delivery company with a renewable energy portfolio of nearly 2,000 MW. It also reinforces Gamesa’s strategy in the US where its solid and well-diversified customer base has translated into the installation of 4,150 MW to date. In the first nine months of this year, the US represented 11% of the company’s sales volumes (by MW).
