Beijing, 16 January 2012. Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind energy, has signed a deal to supply an additional 50 MW of capacity -its G97-2.0 MW wind turbine- to Chinese company Longyuan for a wind farm the power company will build in Ningxia. Gamesa expects these additional 50 MW to be installed in June 2012.

The contract follows a deal signed a few months ago with the same company for the supply of the first 25 G97-2.0 MW machines to be delivered in China.

These contracts coincide with the start-up of manufacturing of this turbine model in China, which will be produced simultaneously in four regions around the world: Europe, USA, China and India.

3,000 turbines installed in China, and a joint development pipeline of 2,900 MW

Gamesa in China operates as a turbine manufacturer and wind farm developer, a competitive advantage it strengthens through joint ventures with the country’s major power companies (at a global and provincial level), thanks to its comprehensive knowledge of the wind energy industry.

Gamesa has operated in China since 2000, installing close to 3,000 turbines at more than 60 sites across the country.

The company currently has six manufacturing plants in Tianjin and Jilin provinces and employs 1,200 people in China.

As a wind farm developer, the company’s joint project portfolio in China now totals more than 2,900 MW.

By September 2011, China accounted for 21% of the company’s total sales.
