Gamesa has announced the company's first contract to supply its G128-5.0 MW turbines. Through the 15 MW order, Gamesa will provide three units of the 5 MW turbines to TuuliWatti Oy, a wind energy joint venture between Finnish energy company St1 Oy and the national retail cooperative S-Group. In addition, Gamesa will perform operation and maintenance services for 10 years.

Specifically, Gamesa will install the turbines at a wind farm being developed by TuuliWatti in Salo, Finland. The wind turbines are scheduled for delivery over the course of 2014, and the facility is slated for commissioning toward the end of next year.

Gamesa says this contract is part of a framework agreement signed by the two parties last year for the supply of 135 MW in Finland. As part of this contract, Gamesa has supplied 18 MW of its 4.5 MW turbines to the Simo wind farm, which is under commissioning, and will also supply 54 MW to the Pori wind farm and 36 MW to the Tornio facility between this year and next.
