With its latest order, Gamesa has entered the Finnish wind energy market. The company has received an 18 MW order from TuuliWatti Ltd., a wind power joint venture between Finnish energy company St1 Ltd. and national retail cooperative S-Group.

The agreement calls for the delivery, installation and start-up of four G128 turbines - each with a capacity of 4.5 MW and a 140-meter tower - at the Simo wind farm in northern Finland. In addition, Gamesa will perform the operations and maintenance services for 10 years, with an option to extend the contract for another five years.

Gamesa says the turbines, which are specifically designed to withstand low temperatures, are scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2013 and are set to begin operating in the fourth quarter of 2013. The Simo wind farm’s turbines will be the largest and highest-capacity turbines installed to date in Finland, according to Gamesa.

In addition, Gamesa and TuuliWatti also signed a framework agreement that includes an option to deliver another 117 MW in coming months - namely, 26 turbines (also from the Gamesa 4.5 MW with towers of 120 meters, 132 meters and 140 meters) - to supply another four wind farms in Finland.
