NAW Staff, Monday 21 October 2013 - 11:30:51

Gamesa says it has inaugurated the company's maiden offshore wind turbine - and the first to be installed in Spain - off the Canary Islands coast.

The G128-5.0 MW wind turbine has a rotor with a diameter of 128 meters and a total height of 154 meters. Since it started operating in July, it has been producing energy at full capacity, dispatching more than 1 GWh to the grid in that time, the company says.

Gamesa adds that the 5 MW turbine marks a milestone in the company’s entry into the offshore energy segment, and it plans to develop 7 MW and 8 MW platforms.
