NEO Energía purchases 60 wind turbines from Gamesa for Poland
The 60 wind turbines, which are to be allocated to the Margonin wind farm in Poland, have a nominal output of 2.0 MW, which will bring the installation to a total output of 120 MW. This contract includes the supply, installation and implementation of the Gamesa G90 wind turbines.In 2007, Neo energía acquired a set of projects for the development of 1.022 MW of wind energy in Poland. Out of all the countries in Central and Eastern Europe, Poland has one of the greatest potentials for growth in the renewable energy sector. Its target is that 10.4% of the energy consumed in the period 2010-14 will come from renewable energy sources, representing around 4,000 MW of installed wind energy capacity in 2014.In addition, Gamesa will deliver 46 wind turbines to Neo energía for Spain and 16 for France. The agreement reached for Spain consists of the supply of 46 wind turbines, with a total output of 92 MW in various Spanish wind farms. The total value of this contract exceeds 80 million Euros.The Spanish wind energy market orders relate to the pluri-annual agreement signed between Gamesa and Neo energía. They include the supply, installation, implementation and maintenance of 21 Gamesa G90-2.0 MW wind turbines in several farms in Andalusia, as well as the installation, implementation and maintenance of another 25 G80-2.0 MW wind turbines in the Carondio wind farm in Asturias.Gamesa will also supply Neo energía with 16 wind turbines to be installed in French wind farms, totalling 19 MW and amounting to an investment of 18 million Euros. The supply allocated to France includes the installation, implementation and maintenance of 11 Gamesa G58-850 KW wind turbines and 5 G90-2.0 MW Gamesa wind turbines for various French wind farms. All of the devices that Gamesa is set to give Neo energía generate clean energy, thus preventing the emission of pollutant substances into the atmosphere. In total, the 122 wind turbines contracted lead to a reduction in CO2 emissions of 346,500 tonnes per year, around 180,000 tonnes in Poland, 138,000 tonnes in Spain and 28,500 tonnes in France.
