Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind energy, has reinforced its presence in the Philippines thanks to a new turnkey contract for the construction, supply and installation of a 54 MW wind farm for Alternergy.
This marks the third contract closed by Gamesa in this market, having signed orders totalling 144 MW in recent months.
Gamesa will install 27 of its G90-2.0 MW turbines in the Pililla wind farm, located on the Philippine island of Luzón. The company will also provide the operations and maintenance (O&M) services at the facility for five years. Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will also build the infrastructure needed to install and operate the facility, including a substation. The civil and electrical works will be executed by Gamesa together with the local Philippine consortium CASA which is formed by Cendaur, Ati Consulting, Santa Clara and Airnergy. The wind farm is scheduled for completion during 2015.
This new contract cements Gamesa’s presence in Asia, where it is already active in several markets (China, India, Japan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Taiwan and South Korea) in its capacity as both technology provider – supplying and maintaining wind turbines – and wind farm developer. As of March 2014, the company had installed a total of 5,016 MW of its turbines in Asia, while it maintains a further 1,900 MW.
