Gamesa consolidates its presence in Brazil with a contract to supply 210 MW of wind turbines to Casa dos Ventos

Wind energy: The G97-2.0 MW WTG, awarded for its technology and innovation in India

Gamesa has been awarded for its technology and innovation in the 7th edition of the Enertia India awards for Sustainable Energy and Power.

The journal on sustainable energy and power has chosen Gamesa, under the Renewable Energy sector category, as the G97-2.0 MW turbine is the most efficient and productive wind turbine and of largest size in operation in India.

Since Gamesa started commercializing this model one year ago, the G97-2.0 MW has been generating about 6.2 million kWh, making it the most productive installation in India.

The Gamesa G97-2.0 MW wind turbine is a standard-bearer in the sector thanks to its low power density. This product contributes to one of the company’s top priorities: significantly cutting the cost of energy (CoE) of Gamesa’s low and medium wind speed products.

Gamesa has sold over 1,300 MW of this model globally. The characteristics of this turbine make it ideal for high-growth markets such as India, Chinese provinces close to major load centres (Beijing and Shanghai) and Brazil, as well as Europe and the US.

This turbine is part of Gamesa’s 2.0-2.5 MW platform, the most versatile on the market: five different rotors (G80-2.0 MW, G87-2.0 MW, G90-2.0 MW, G97-2.0 MW, G114-2.0 MW y G114-2.5 MW), tower heights ranging from 60m to 125m and environmental alternatives designed to enable installation at even the most complex sites. Thanks to this performance, close to 16,000 MW of this platform’s WTGs have been installed worldwide, while average fleet availability is running at over 98%.
