The firm will join Vestas, Nordex and Siemens in the 3.3MW turbine market. Siemens unveiled its low-wind model aimed at the German and European markets in September 2014. And last month, Vestas introduced a new power mode option to its 3.3MW platform, enabling output to be increased to 3.45MW in some conditions.

Gamesa also plans to make its 2.5MW platform available in India and Brazil. The company's most popular turbine in 2014 was its G97-2MW machine.

Gamesa has unveiled its 2015-2017 outlook in which it is looking to secure between 3.5GW and 3.8GW in sales by 2017. 

Its 2014 annual sales in MW increased 34% compared to the year before, buoyed by a 15% increase in India. India itself made up 26% of Gamesa's sales last year. Latin America contributed over a third of the total, with China at 9%.

The 2015-2017 company outlook is also aiming to double its pre-tax earnings by 2017, compared to the €191 million reported for 2014.
