Spain-based wind turbine manufacturer Gamesa has signed two supply contracts in China totalling 112MW.

The first is with CGN Wind Energy, a subsidiary of China’s General Nuclear (CGN) Power Group, and will see Gamesa supply 32 of its G97 2MW turbine models.

The 64MW order is for the Yangchajie wind complex in the province of Yunnan, which is in the south-east of China.

"Gamesa will supply and install 24 of its G97 2.0MW turbines at the Zhaojiashan wind farm in Shanxi province."

Gamesa is expected to deliver the turbines in January 2015 and the wind farm is likely to be commissioned in March 2015.

The deal is the third between Gamesa and CGN. Other contracts include one signed earlier this year for 150MW, 100MW of which is for the first phase of the Yangchajie wind farm.

The second contract is for a 48MW turbine delivery for Everbright, which is a subsidiary of the renewable energy Everbright Group.

Gamesa will supply and install 24 of its G97 2.0MW turbines at the Zhaojiashan wind farm in Shanxi province, western Peking.

The turbines are expected to be delivered in March 2015, a which the project is likely to be commissioned in May 2015.

Zhaojiashan is the second wind power project for Everbright.

Everbright’s first wind project, also in Shanxi province, is equipped with 48MW wind turbines from Gamesa.

Gamesa’s China CEO José Antonio Miranda said: "[The] signature of these agreements is tantamount to an endorsement from our Chinese customers, which have once again chosen us as benchmark supplier for their projects."

Since 2000, the company has installed more than 3,500MW of power in the country and currently services approximately 1,000MW.
