Gamesa has announced today it has signed a turbine supply deal with RES -one of the world's leading independent renewable energy project developers- for Meikle Carewe Wind Farm in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The contract will see Gamesa supplying 12 G52-850kW machines.

The turbine supply contract includes a 10 year service contract for the wind farm.

The wind farm -with a total installed capacity of 10.2 MW- will generate electricity equivalent to the annual needs of approximately 7,000 households every year.

Javier Perea, Commercial, Project and Offshore Managing Director of Gamesa said: "The new supply and maintenance agreement consolidates our relationship with one of the most dynamic independent renewable energy project developers. RES has considered our G52-850 kW the best solution for this project and we foresee relevant opportunities for our G5X platform in this market."

Ted Picken, RES Construction Director, commented: "This significant milestone marks the first collaboration between RES and Gamesa in the UK.  We are confident that Gamesa will work with RES to continue our strong history of completing projects safely and on time."
