Gamesa has reached an agreement with Swedish wind farm developer Eolus Vind for the supply of four G114-2.0 MW turbines - a deal that marks the European debut of the new wind turbine model.

With a rotor spanning 114 meters, the new turbine's swept area is 38% greater than that of the G97-2.0 MW, while it produces up to 20% more energy a year, according to Gamesa. The company adds that it designed the G114-2.0 MW to maximize performance at medium and moderate wind speed sites.

Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will supply, install and commission the turbines at the 8 MW Notasen wind farm starting this summer. The company will also provide the facility’s operations and maintenance services for a period of five years. This is Gamesa’s second supply agreement with Eolus Vind, having already installed two 850 kW turbines for the developer.
