Oct. 7 (Bloomberg) — Gamesa Corp. Tecnologica SA, Spain’s
biggest wind turbine maker, will supply 34 wind turbines to
Guirapa wind complex in northeastern Brazil.
Guirapa, a joint venture between energy developer Sequoia
Energia and utility Cia. Hidroeletrica do Sao Francisco, will
receive the equipment for a total 68 megawatts of capacity,
Gamesa said today on its website.
Gamesa is the second largest wind turbine supplier in
Brazil with a 16 percent share of the market, according to
Bloomberg New Energy Finance. With the deals announced today,
the Zamudio, Spain-based company has won orders for the supply
of more than 700 megawatts in Brazil.
Last week, Gamesa agreed to supply equipment with 231
megawatts of capacity to Brazil’s CPFL Energias Renovaveis SA.
Press officials for Gamesa and Sequoia Energia didn’t
immediately respond to phone and e-mail requests for comment.
