Gamesa to Supply Wind Turbines for Ontario Wind Farm. A 10-megawatt wind power farm planned for Ontario, will be the first Canadian project by global wind energy leader Gamesa Technology Corp

Gamesa wins first Canadian wind power order. Gamesa will supply 5 G97 2MW wind turbines to the Gesner wind farm located on the Lake Erie shore between Chatham-Kent and London.

Gamesa has announced that it will supply five of its G97 2.0 MW wind turbines for the 10 MW Gesner Wind Farm, which is planned for Highgate, Ontario – marking the company’s first wind energy project in Canada.

The wind farm, which is being developed by Saturn Power, will be located near the northern shore of Lake Erie, between Chatham-Kent and London, Ontario, about 70 miles east of Detroit. The wind power output will be purchased by the Ontario Power Authority.

"This is a new milestone for Gamesa," notes David Takash, vice president of sales for Gamesa North America. "The Canadian wind energy market offers abundant opportunities."
