Gamesa signs first wind turbine supply contract in Jordan

Deal calls for Gamesa to supply 33 G97-2.0 MW turbines at a facility being developed by Elecnor.

Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will install 33 of its G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Maan wind farm, which is being built by Elecnor in the south of Jordan. The project is for the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan under a turnkey arrangement.

The wind turbines are scheduled for delivery during the first half of 2015, while the facility is expected to be completed in early 2016.

This is the second wind farm being developed in Jordan, a country which is highly dependent on imported oil and gas. According to recent estimates by Make, installed wind capacity is set to exceed 600 MW in Jordan by 2020, buoyed by the government's stated policy of having renewable energy account for 10% of the nation’s energy mix by 2020.
