Gamesa signs community wind deal with HTWN

UNITED STATES: Gamesa has signed a distribution agreement with community wind group Harvest the Wind Network (HTWN) as part of its move to targeting the market.

The deal will see HTWN made primary distributor for Gamesa's G5X 840kW range of turbines. HTWN has a pipeline of over 100 projects ranging in size from 50kW to 10MW slated for installation during the next 18 months.

The G5X turbine was first launched in 2001.

Speaking about the deal, Gamesa vice president for marketing David Rosenberg said: "Distributed and community wind is the next frontier for Gamesa. Combine our turbine platform with Harvest the Wind’s vast network of distributed wind developers, and the wind-energy solutions we can jointly bring to communities and businesses across North America is enormous."

HTWN comprises 13 independent dealer groups throughout the US and Canada and had installed and is servicing over 125 turbines.

HTWN vice president Haley Estes said: "The United States currently has a mid-scale wind turbine void that will be filled through this timely partnership.

"The two companies will provide American industries with the ability to power manufacturing plants, schools and large industrial facilities, which will create nationwide jobs and foster energy independence."
