Gamesa to supply 135MW turbines for wind farms in Finland
Spanish wind energy manufacturer Gamesa has secured a contract to supply, install and operate four G128 turbines at the 18MW Sino wind farm in northern Finland.
The wind farm is owned by the joint venture between Finnish energy company St1 and retail cooperative S-Group - TuuliWatti, with Gamesa also securing a 10-year operations and maintenance contract.
Gamesa commercial and projects managing director Javier Perea remarked that the innovative modular design and technology of the turbines will ensure maximum reliability and compliance with the most exacting grid codes and stringent environmental requirements.
TuuliWatti general manager Jari Suominen added, "Simo is an important cornerstone project for TuuliWatti.
"Gamesa and its 4.5 MW system offer the optimal product for our wind energy project."
The turbines will be delivered towards the middle of 2013 with the plant expected to provide enough clean energy to power 11,000 households per annum.
Gamesa and TuuliWatti also signed a framework agreement that includes an option to deliver another 26 wind turbines with a combined capacity of 117MW for an additional four wind farms in the country.
