Earlier this month, Gamesa signed a turbine supply contract for 100 MW capacity with Hebei Construction & Investment Group (HCIG), China.

Under the agreement, Gamesa is required to supply, install and commission 50 of its G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Fengdianzhiqing wind farm, located in Zhangjiakou, in the province of Hebei.

The company will be delivering the turbines in the third quarter of 2015, in accordance with the agreement. And the project is slated for commissioning the following quarter.

In its report for the first quarter of 2015, Gamesa had stated that it earned a net profit of 62 million euros during the period. It was more than triple the 17 million euros reported for the same period the previous year.
