Gamesa will supply 101 G97-2.0 MW 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 the G97-2.0 MW.
The project is still under development, and the decision to proceed is contingent upon local government approval. Iberdrola will be able to use the turbines at other possible US sites.
The wind farm project is the last phase of Iberdrola's Peñascal complex which, once commissioned, will have capacity of 606 MW.
Gamesa has already installed close to 4,000 MW in 48 wind farms in 21 states in the US.
