Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has won a 23.1MW order to supply a project on the Canary Island of Tenerife.

SGRE will supply turbines to two projects: the 12.6MW Bermejo and 10.5MW Vera de Abote. The firm will also supply the relevant infrastructure as part of the EPC contract from first-time customer, the renewables arm of fuel and gas provider Disa.

Both projects will comprise G114-2.1MW turbines, with commissioning due by the second half of 2018. 

The Spanish government is targeting 450MW of installed capacity in the Canary Islands by 2028.

The region allocated developing rights for projects totalling 422MW in December 2015, with a further 186.3MW also licensed over the summer of 2016.


German manufacturer Nordex has been awarded a 14.4MW deal from first time customer Neoen. It will provide six N114 2.4MW turbines to the Pays Chaumontais project in eastern France.

Installation is due to take place in Q1 2018, and Nordex will service the turbines for 16 years. 


Danish manufacturer Vestas has won a 48MW deal from Elecnor for the supply of turbines to a project in the Dominican Republic. 

Fourteen V117-3.45MW turbines will be installed at the Larimar II project in Enriquillo, southwest of the country. 

The first 49.5MW Larimar project was completed in 2016, and comprises 15 Vestas V112-3.3MW turbines.

"The Larimar wind park is key to the country's goal to increase the share of renewable energy in its energy mix and hereby reduce green-house gas emissions by 25% by 2030 compared to 2010," Vestas said. 

Installation at Larimar II is expected in Q1 2018, with completion by Q3.
