Gamesa, global technological leader in the wind energy industry, has reached an agreement with Polish power company PGE Energia Odnawialna (PGE EO), the renewable arm of Polish largest utility PGE, to sell a wind farm (combined installed capacity of 60 MW) in Poland.

According to the agreement, the sale of the wind farm will be completed after commissioning, which is scheduled for second quarter, 2012.
This agreement strengthens the Gamesa's wind farm development and sales division in Eastern Europe and, specifically in Poland, where the company has sold several projects in recent months-some to PGE EO-. Gamesa's portfolio in Poland totals 768 MW of wind farm projects at varying stages of development, 108 MW of which are under construction.
As for other Eastern European countries, including Romania and Bulgaria, the company's project portfolio exceeds 1,100 MW.
