Siemens Gamesa is to supply 22 turbines with a total capacity of 64 MW at two windfarms being developed by Gas Natural Fenosa Renovables in Spain.

Both projects are the result of the renewable power capacity allocated to Gas Natural Fenosa Renovables in an auction held by the Spanish government last May.

The first order involves the installation of 15 Siemens Gamesa G126-2.625 MW turbines, while the second covers the supply of seven G132-3.465 MW turbines, which is one of the compnay’s newest models and features 64.5m-long glass fibre blades.

Siemens Gamesa said the orders mark the first time both turbine models will be installed in commercial wind farms in Spain.

Most of the parts for both projects will be made in Spain: the blades will be manufactured at a factory in Navarra and the nacelles will be produced at a plant in Soria.

The wind turbines are scheduled for delivery during the third quarter of 2018, with the windfarms due for commissioning towards the end of next year.
