Wind turbine manufacturer Gamesa has signed an agreement with local power company Kengen to supply 16 G52 850 kW wind turbines.

Turbine delivery and installation for the 13.6 MW Ngong II wind farm, being developed by a subsidiary of Iberdrola, is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2014. Upon completion, Gamesa says the wind farm will be the second one built in Kenya and the largest wind farm in East Africa.

Gamesa first entered Africa in 1999 and currently has nearly 850 MW installed and 419 MW contracted under maintenance.
