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.
