Gamesa has signed a 100 MW turbine supply agreement with CGN Wind Energy for a wind farm being developed in the province of Yunnan, China.

The turbine maker says the scope of the agreement encompasses the supply and installation of 50 G97-2.0 MW units, specifically configured for high-altitude locations, at the Yangchajie wind complex. Gamesa expects to fulfill the order by the last quarter of this year.

In addition, Gamesa and CGN, a subsidiary of China's General Nuclear Power Group, have agreed to the potential supply of another 100 MW during a second phase of the project in 2015.

"This agreement marks a very important step in Gamesa's sales and product strategy in China, where we recently announced another two contracts, one for Fujian for 48 MW and one for CGN for 49.3 MW,” says Jose Antonio Miranda, Gamesa's CEO in China. “The Chinese wind market offers spectacular growth prospects.”

In China, Gamesa says it has installed 3.5 GW of wind power to date and currently services more than 850 MW.
