Gamesa hails first deal for 5MW wind turbines

Spanish wind energy company Gamesa has won the first contract for its new 5 MW turbines.

The firm will supply three units of the G128-5.0 MW turbines to a wind farm in Finland and claims that this will make them the biggest and most powerful wind turbines installed so far in the country.

The deal is with TuuliWatti Oy, a joint venture between Finnish energy company St1 and national retail co-operative S-Group.

Under the contract, Gamesa will also carry out operation and maintenance services for 10 years.

TuuliWatti is building a wind farm in Salo, southern Finland. The Gamesa turbines are scheduled for delivery over the course of next year while the project is expected to be commissioned at the end of the year.à‚ à‚ 

This deal is part of a wider framework agreement signed by Gamesa and TuuliWatti Oy for the supply of a total of 135 MW in Finland. Gamesa has already supplied 18 MW to the Simo wind farm, which is currently being commissioned, and will supply a further 54 MW and 36 MW to two more projects between this year and next.
