Spain’s Gamesa Wins Tender To Install 104 MW Wind Generators in Romania
Spanish wind turbine maker Gamesa said on Tuesday it won a tender to supply and install 52 wind turbine generators with a total power of 104-megawatts (MW) for Blue Line Impex, a Romanian unit of Italy’s Enel.
The 52 Gamesa G87-2.0 MW and Gamesa G90-2.0 MW wind turbines will be supplied to the Dealul Pietros, Cara Constantin and Corugea wind farms located in the north of Dobrogea, a region in southeastern Romania, Gamesa said in a statement.
The company provided no financial details.
The deal envisages the supply, installation, start-up, operation and a two-year maintenance of the wind turbines. It also includes an option for the supply of an additional 69 wind turbines, Gamesa (www.gamesa.es) said.
The annual production of these facilities will replace 22,360 tonnes of petroleum equivalent per year and avoid the emission into the atmosphere of 156,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year, it added.
"Romania is an area of outstanding potential growth in the energy sector, particularly wind power, and it is expected that installed power will amount to a total of 500 MW at the end of 2020," the Spanish company said.
Blue Line Impex is a subsidiary of Enel Green Power SpA, the renewable energy company of Enel Spa.
