Spanish manufacturing company Gamesa has secured a new order to supply 298MW turbines at the El Cabo wind complex in New Mexico, US.
The new complex is being built by Avangrid Renewables, which is a part of the Spanish public multinational electric utility company Iberdrola.
The order involves supply of 142 G114-2.1 MW turbines, with delivery expected to commence in March next year. The turbines are will be commissioned in June of the same year.
Once in operation, the El Cabo wind complex will have the capability to meet the electricity demands of more than 200,000 US families.
The project will also be able to reduce carbon emissions by approximately 447,000t every year, which is equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions of nearly 149,000 cars in one year.
Signed in Q2 of this year, the current contract is one of the largest ever received by Gamesa. It has strengthened Gamesa's position in the US wind sector, where it had already commissioned 4,338MW of wind turbines.
