November 16 (SeeNews) - Spanish wind-focused renewables group Gamesa (BME:GAM) said Wednesday it will supply, install and commission at a 90-MW onshore wind park in China its first G132-5.0 MW turbines.

The contract, which was signed during the third quarter of 2016 with the green energy unit of Chinese firm Sinohydro Corp Ltd, calls for Gamesa to supply 18 units of its largest model to date. They will be delivered and commissioned at Sinohydro Renewable Energy’s Nangang wind complex in Tianjin during the fourth quarter of 2017 and the first quarter of 2018, respectively.

“This contract marks an important strategic landmark for Gamesa: not only is it the maiden order from the 5-MW platform in Asia, it is the first signed order for the G132-5.0 MW,” Gamesa China CEO, Alvaro Bilbao, said. The Spanish wind turbine maker has shipped more than 4,000 MW of its machines to China so far, it said in a press release.  

Sinohydro is part of Chinese engineering and construction firm PowerChina, also known as Power Construction Corp of China (SHA:601669).
