Gamesa has announced that several of its 2 MW wind turbines - including the company's G80, G87, G90, G97 and G87 CS models - have achieved certification from the China Electricity Power Research Institute (CEPRI).

The first G87-2.0 MW machine was tested in September 2011 and received certification in November 2011. This case set a solid foundation and created a better communication platform between Gamesa engineers and CEPRI, and made it possible for the other four Gamesa models to get tested and receive certification within nine months, the company explains.

Gamesa is scheduled to receive certification for its G128-4.5 MW wind turbine in China in the coming two months after finishing a series of tests of low-voltage ride-through in Alaiz, Spain. This will help develop the market for this type of the machine in China, Gamesa says.

Meanwhile, Gamesa’s G58-850 kW wind turbine was tested in China’s Liaoning province by Northeast Electricity Power Research Institute (under CEPRI) and received certification in March. The G52-850 kW turbine is undergoing testing and will receive the certification soon, Gamesa says.
