Gamesa said it had sold more than 150 of the G97 turbines in China since 2011.

Since July 2015, however, new laws in China make it compulsory for manufacturers to get local certification in order to market their turbines in China.

The Spanish firm said it was the first foreign OEM to get official recognition from a Chinese certification body.

In May, local developer Hebei Construction and Investment ordered 50 G97 2MW turbines from Gamesa for the Fengdianzhiqing project in Hebei province, north-east China.   

Gamesa said it is planning to have the rest of its 2MW platform available in China to be accredited there.

Yesterday, the firm unveiled a new 2.5MW low wind turbine with a 126-metre diameter rotor. It was unveiled at the China Wind Power 2015 exhibition, taking place in Beijing.


Gamesa has also announced the G114 2MW low-wind turbine has achieved IEC type certification from accrediation firm DEWI. 

The manufacturer said the certification was the final stage of the accreditation process.
