Gamesa has commissioned its G128-5.0 MW offshore prototype at the Arinaga Quay in the Canary Islands, marking the first offshore wind turbine connected to the grid in Spain.

The 5 MW machine has a rotor diameter of 128 meters and a total height of 154 meters. Gamesa began the installation of the tower, nacelle and three blades of the wind turbine earlier this year. The company says the commissioning of the turbine is a key step in the machine’s certification, foreseen in the upcoming months.
