Gamesa has signed an agreement with Iberdrola under which it will supply 202MW in the U.S. Specifically, Gamesa will supply 101 G97-2.0MW turbines for the Baffin wind farm project being developed by Iberdrola in southern Texas. The wind turbines are scheduled for delivery mid-2014, while the facility is slated for commissioning towards the end of next year. This agreement marks the largest single order for this WTG.
The Baffin wind project is still under development, and the decision to proceed is contingent upon local government approval. Iberdrola is well positioned to utilize the 202MW of turbines at other possible U.S. sites.
The wind farm project is the last phase of Iberdrola’s Pe√±ascal complex which, once commissioned, will have capacity of 606MW, generating enough power to supply 210,000 households and prevent the emission of 850,000 tons of greenhouse gases every year.
