Gamesa has signed an agreement with Esquilvent, a wind power developer from Castile-Leon for the construction of three wind farms with aggregate capacity of 140.6 MW in the town of Ampudia in Palencia (Castile-Leon, Spain).
The contract encompasses execution of the wind farms’ electrical installations and the civil engineering work as well as the supply, assembly, installation, start-up and maintenance of 75 Gamesa G90 turbines. Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will operate the facility and provide maintenance services for a five-year period.
Gamesa plans to start to build the wind farms immediately, work which should be completed between the end of 2010 and the first quarter of 2011.
This transaction comes on the heels of another two agreements in force between Gamesa and companies of the same group for the installation of another 62 MW between two wind farms in Valladolid (Castile-Leon), facilities which are already under construction. New agreements are expected to be close with the same developer in the near future for the construction of several wind farms.
Gamesa has a significant presence in the region of Castile-Leon, where it has installed over 2,500 MW of capacity to date, 350 MW of which it developed itself.
