Simo, the first commercial wind farm equipped with Gamesa 4.5 MW wind turbines, has been commissioned in Finland, where the company has installed four G128-4.5 MW machines for TuuliWatti.

The 18 MW project is part of the framework agreement that Gamesa reached at the end of 2012 with TuuliWatti to supply 135 MW. Of these, 123 MW have already become firm orders: in addition to the Simo wind farm, 54 MW and 36 MW of Gamesa 4.5 MW turbines will be supplied to the Tornio and Pori wind farms, respectively, and 15 MW to the Salo wind farm using 5 MW turbines. Last year, Gamesa signed a second framework agreement with TuuliWatti for the supply of up to 285 MW of its 5 MW turbines.
