Venezuela Gets First 100-MW Wind Project

Gamesa Corporacion Tecnologica has reached an agreement with Venezuelan energy group Petroleos de Venezuela S.A. (PDVSA) for the supply of 76 AE61-1320 kilowatt wind turbine generators, amounting to a total power of 100 megawatts (MW).

Marking the company’s first step into the Latin American wind energy market, through its subsidiary MADE, the turbines are destined to what will become the first Venezuelan wind energy facility, located in the Paraguaná peninsula in the state of Falcón.

This agreement, amounting to almost €116 million [US $162.5 million], includes the supply and overseeing the installation and start-up of the turbines, along with two years of operation and maintenance. The wind energy facility’s assembly work will commence in the last quarter of 2009.
