Gamesa expands US operations

Wind turbine specialist Gamesa has won a contract to supply a total of 10 MW of capacity for a wind farm being developed by Western Wind Energy Corporation for UniSource Electric in Kingman, Arizona.

The farm will consist of five G90-2.0 MW wind turbines on 78 metre towers. Gamesa will oversee the wind turbine installation, which is planned for April 2011.

This is Gamesa's first contract in Arizona. The company has two manufacturing plants in Pennsylvania, with production capacity of over 1,000 MW/year, and employing over 800 people in the state.

The US market accounts for 22% of the company's total worldwide wind turbine generator sales. Gamesa projects 15% average annual growth in sales in the US between 2009 and 2013.

Western Wind Energy is utilising funds from the Section 1603 Programme to partially fund the construction of this wind farm. This programme, created as part of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) that was enacted in February 2009, provides an optional cash payment for developers in lieu of a 30% investment tax credit and production tax credit.
