Spanish wind technology is being used to develop a wind farm in China. Spain’s Gamesa is to provide 48 MW of turbines for Chinese firm Huadian Group’s wind plant in Liyushan of the Fujian Province. 

24 of Gamesa’s G87- 2.0 MW Class S turbines, which have a rotor diameter of 87m, will be built at the wind farm. The turbines are part of Gamesa’s G9X – 2.0 MW platform, which the company says offers site–specific optimisation and maximisation of production.

Gamesa said: “G87-2.0 MW Class S wind turbine includes design improvements allowing installation close to Class I condition sites, increasing energy production compared to the former G80-2.0 MW Class I by more than 8 per cent.”

The Chinese power company, Huadian Group, has a cooperation history with Gamesa dating back to 2005 with a project in Inner Mongolia.

Gamesa said: “This long-term partnership not only helps to shoot confidence into both sides but serves as a solid foundation for more than 420 MW in projects. The contract of the specially designed machines will definitely open a new cooperation platform for the two sides.”

Gamesa has operated in China as a turbine manufacturer and wind turbine developer since 2000, installing close to 3,000 turbines at more than 60 sites across the country.
