Gamesa Wind Tianjin Co. Ltd, a manufacturer of renewable energy products, has signed an agreement with Longyuan Electric Power Group Corp., part of the China Guodian Group Corp., to supply 601 Gamesa G5Z-850 kW wind turbines. The turbines will be installed in several wind farms located in different Chinese provinces, for a total power of 510.85 MW.

According to Gamesa, this contract is the largest the company has agreed upon in China. It includes the supply of wind turbines without towers and the supervision of their assembly and commissioning, as well as two years of operation and maintenance.

Guillermo Ulacia, Gamesa's chairman and chief executive officer, says that this commercial agreement "reinforces the company's commitment to the Asian wind energy market and confirms the excellent positioning of Gamesa Wind Tianjin in the Chinese market."

To help meet this demand, Gamesa is opening its first factory in China, where it will produce nacelles, blades and other core components for turbines. With this new addition, the company now has a total of 27 production plants, including plants in the U.S.
