48MW of Spanish turbines to build Chinese wind farm

Gamesa to deliver 2MW wind turbines to Longyuan Group in China

Gamesa's turbines will be used to build up the wind farm in China’s Fujian Province

Spanish turbines have been selected to build a wind farm in China. Spain’s Gamesa will supply 48MW of capacity of its 2.0MW wind turbines to Longyuan Group for a wind farm in Jiangkou of Fujian Province.

Gamesa will start to deliver 24 sets of G87- 2.0MW Class S and G90-2.0MW wind turbines from October this year.

Taking the coastal area and the altitude into consideration, Gamesa said it has “specially prepared the kind of integrated solution for the client to maximise the performance of the turbines.” G87-2.0MW Class S includes design improvements to be able to be installed in close to Class I condition sites, increasing energy production compared to the former G80-2.0MW Class I by more than 8 per cent.

Up to now, Gamesa and Longyuan Group has jointly cooperated a total of 1,728MW projects in past years.

Gamesa said it has operated in China since 2000, installing close to 3,000 turbines at more than 60 sites across the country. As a wind farm developer, the company's joint development pipeline in China now totals around 3,000MW.
