Spanish wind turbine maker Gamesa has inked a deal to supply wind turbines in Uruguay, representing a new market for the company in Latin America

Gamesa will deliver 25 of its G90-2.0 MW turbines to a 50 MW wind farm which Abengoa, via companies Teyma and Inabensa, is developing in Peralta, in the department of Tacuarembó. 

The turbines will be manufactured at Gamesa’s plants in the US, with transport, assembly and start-up scheduled for 2013.

As part of the deal Gamesa will also perform operation and maintenance services on the machines for 20 years.

Commenting on the deal, Edgard Corrochano, Gamesa’s Mercosur commercial & project manager said: “Uruguay offers appealing growth prospects, and marks our launch in a new country just a year and a half after we began doing business in the Mercosur region.”

Latin America and Mercosur have become leading growth markets for the wind turbine maker. In the first four months of this year, Gamesa received orders in Brazil, Mexico and the Dominican Republic, totalling 186 MW.
