Spanish turbine manufacturer Gamesa has been contracted to supply French developer Valorem’s three wind farms totalling 36MW.

Under the contract, Gamesa will install eight of its G114-2.5 MW turbines at the Santerre windfarm in the department of Somme in northern France.

The company will also supply and install five G87-2.0 MW turbines at the Soulanes farm and three G87-2.0 MW turbines at the Albine facility in France.

In addition, Gamesa will be responsible to provide operation and maintenance (O&M) services at these facilities for the next ten years.

"Gamesa will provide operation and maintenance services at these facilities for the next ten years."

While the turbine deliveries will take place during Q4 of this year, these facilities will be commissioned from March 2017.

Gamesa made its foray into the French market in 2000, and the latest order further boosts its business strategy in the country. So far, it has installed 790MW in France.
