Gamesa, global wind power technology leader, has signed an agreement with RWE Renewables Polska, the Polish subsidiary of Germany energy company RWE Innogy GMBH, for the sale of the 14 MW Krzecin wind farm located in the Western Pomeranian region of northeast Poland.
Gamesa developed and built this wind farm which comprises seven Gamesa G90-2.0 MW turbines. Each year, these turbines have the capacity to produce some 30,000 megawatt-hours of electricity. This is sufficient to power the equivalent of over 15,000 households in Poland and prevent the emission of some 30,000 tonnes of CO2.
This agreement marks the second agreement reached between the two companies in the wind energy market, Gamesa having sold RWE Innogy a 32 MW wind farm in Poland 18 months ago.
The agreement reinforces Gamesa's wind farm development and sale business in Eastern Europe, specifically in Poland where it has sold multiple wind energy developments in recent months and where it had a pipeline of 800 MW at the end of the first quarter of 2012. The Polish facilities, coupled with those of Romania and Bulgaria, bring the portfolio managed by the company in Eastern Europe to 2,550 MW.
