Gamesa enters Philippine market supplying 54 MW
Zamudio / Madrid - Gamesa is adding a new market to its geographic footprint, having signed an agreement to supply 54 MW of turbines to the San Lorenzo wind farm being constructed by Japan's Kanematsu Corporation in Guimaras Island for Trans Asia Renewable Energy, one of the country's leading independent energy producers.
Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will handle the supply, assembly and commissioning of 27 of its G90-2.0 MW turbines at the facility. In addition, Gamesa will maintain the wind farm for six years, with option for renewal. The turbines are slated for delivery over the course of 2014 and the project is expected to be fully commissioned by the end of next year.
According to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the Philippines had by the end of 2011 a cumulative installed wind capacity of 33 MW and it is expected to install 200 MW until 2015.
