According to the NREA, Gamesa signed a contract early December. The project, which is supported with Spanish funding, is located around 80km north of Hurghada on the Red Sea Coast. It is scheduled for commissioning in 2016.

Gamesa is also set to sign a contract with NREA this month for 220MW in the same region. Vestas and Acciona were also in the running for the two projects.

Gamesa is by far and away Egypt's market leader, having supplied 405MW of the 550MW installed capacity and with another 200MW under construction on the Gulf of El-Zayt. Vestas and Nordex have installed 77MW and 63MW respectively.
