Gamesa to supply turbines for 60-MW capacity to three Thai wind parks

By Editor


Chinese developer PowerChina ZhongNan recently contracted Gamesa to supply wind turbines for three wind parks in Thailand. The company is to supply thirty G114-2.0-megawatt turbines for total capacity of 60 megawatts.

Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will supply 25 turbines to Wayu farm, one turbine to Subplu1 and four to Subplu2 — all located in Nakhon Ratchasima province, central Thailand.

Gamesa will complete delivery of the turbines this year and commission them next year. Also, the wind turbine maker will maintain the projects for the next 10 years.

The project is the first that Gamesa has received in Thailand and also the first time that it is going to install a G114-2.0 megawatt turbine in Asia-Pacific.

Besides Thailand, Gamesa has projects in Vietnam, Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Sri Lanka, China and India. It has installed more than 5,500 MW capacity in these markets.

The company states that G114-2.0 MW is a low power density model designed to yield power at lower cost. They are ideal for sites with low and medium wind speeds such as Thailand.

Gamesa has won the supply contract for 104 turbines of this model to be installed at the 208-megawatt wind power project to be developed by Iberdrola for Amazon.

The turbine maker has stated that it has already signed orders for supply of more than 1,200 MW in markets including Sweden, Uruguay, the US, Poland and Brazil within the first year of the launch of the model.
