Having installed over 55% of the total installed fleet, Siemens Gamesa continues to win new orders in Spain. The company recently secured an agreement for the supply of wind turbines at a wind farm developed in Tenerife by Iberdrola together with local partners.
Under the terms of the agreement, Siemens Gamesa will install seven of its SG 2.6-114 turbines (18 MW) at the Chimiche II wind farm, in the town of Granadilla de Abona, Tenerife, over the course of this year. The developers have registered this project within the special quota allocated to wind power in the Canary Islands.
The blades will be manufactured at the As Somozas factory in Galicia and the nacelles will be produced at the Ágreda plant in Soria. The company will also operate and maintain the facility.
Siemens Gamesa’s business relationship with Iberdrola in Spain dates back to 2000. Since then it has supplied more than 4,400 turbines to wind farms owned by Iberdrola in this market.
