Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind energy, has secured type A certification for its G132-5.0 MW turbine from DNV GL, a certification service provider.
This milestone marks the culmination of the G132-5.0 MW certification process and endorses the technological credentials of this turbine, the most powerful made by Gamesa.
This turbine generates 3% more power than the G128-5.0 MW and is capable of generating enough energy to supply 5,000 households a year.
The first G132-5.0 MW prototype was installed at the R&D facility in Alaiz (Navarra) in April of last year. It is 186 metres tall and each of its blades is 64.5 metres long, making them the largest ever transported in Spain. It is worth highlighting the logistical challenge implied by this assembly, specifically the task of transporting the blades in one piece from the facility in Aoiz (Navarra) to the top of the mountains in Alaiz.
