Gamesa Successful In Thailand And Indonesia

Zamudia, Spain - Gamesa has secured new orders in Thailand and Indonesia.

The company will install 20 turbines for Thailand´s developer Gunkul Engineering Public Company Limited. More specifically, the company has entered into an agreement for the supply of 20 for its new turbine, the G126-2.625 MW (52.5 MW), at the Mittraphap wind farm, located in the province of Nakhon Ratchasima, in southern Thailand. PowerChina Zhongnan Engineering Corporation will carry out the engineering procurement and construction for this project. The turbines are slated for delivery during the third quarter of this year and the project is due to be commissioned in the first quarter of 2018. In addition, Gamesa will maintain the complex for the next 10 years.

In addition Gamesa has entered into an agreement with PT UPC Sidrap Bayu Energi - a joint venture owned by UPC Renewables, PT Binatek and AC Energy Holdings- for the supply of 75 MW for the first wind farm ever to be commissioned in Indonesia, a high-potential wind market. This order also constitutes a sales and product milestone for Gamesa as it marks the first time its G114-2.5 MW model will be installed in Asia-Pacific, excluding China. These turbines will reach up to 2.625 MW under certain technical conditions. This project is part of the Indonesian government program to reach 35 GW by 2019, combining traditional and renewable sources. Longer term, its goal is to have 23 percent of output generated from renewable sources by 2025.
