Gamesa has closed the sale of a 15.3 MW wind farm development in Scotland to international specialist investor and asset manager John Laing.

The Carscreugh wind farm, located in Dumfries and Galloway Council, will be equipped with 18 Gamesa G52 turbines, each with a unit capacity of 850 kW.

Gamesa expects to install the wind turbines toward the end of this year and to commission the facility in the first quarter of 2014. Under the agreement, the company will also carry out operations and maintenance services at the facility for 10 years.

The company says this transaction - Gamesa's debut wind farm sale in the U.K. market - falls under its new strategy in the wind farm development and sale segment: to leverage and monetize the group's know-how and pipeline without having to put up internal funds.
