Gamesa Corporacion Technologica SA signed agreements with China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power Co. and China Huadian New Energy Development Co. to develop wind farms totaling 600 megawatts.
Gamesa, a wind turbine manufacturing company which works on wind farm development, will help develop a 300-MW wind farm for Guangdong Nuclear in Jilin Province. The other 300-MW wind farm for China Huadian will be located in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. Gamesa will provide both projects with wind turbines during the next five years.
China Huadian will be located in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. Gamesa will provide both projects with wind turbines during the next five years.
Both projects will make use of a versatile wind turbine, the G9X-2.0 MW unit that has four different rotor sizes – 80, 87, 90, and 97 meters. These wind turbines to be delivered will be made in two manufacturing plants of Gamesa which incidentally are in the same location of the projects – Jilin and Inner Mongolia.
With these two wind farm contracts, Gamesa’s cooperation agreements in China have reached a total of 2,726 MW of wind energy.
This is China Huadian’s second wind project with Gamesa. Their last project was a supply agreement providing China Huadian with a total of 300 MW in wind power back in July 23, 2009. The venture was a 200-MW wind project jointly developed through 2009 to 2011. The remaining 100 MW were for the other wind projects to be developed by China Huadian alone.
China Huadian New Energy Development Co., Ltd. was founded on September 26, 2007 and is the whole owned subsidiary of China Huadian Group. The company is mainly focused on new energy projects, which include the investment, construction, production, and power sales of wind, small hydro, solar, biomass, geothermal, and tidal energies.
China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power Co., Ltd., established in February 2007, is a subsidiary solely held by C.G.N. The company’s major businesses focus on both nuclear and wind power.
