Spain's dominant turbine manufacturer, Gamesa Eólica, has clinched a $ 6 million turnkey deal with China's Gansu Jieyuan Electric Power Corporation. The contract represents an 11.9 MW extension to a 37.8 MW turnkey deal between the two companies earlier this year. Gamesa says the first of the 50 turbines will be going up in April at the Chinese utility's Yumen plant. Twelve 660 kW turbines from Gamesa Eóica have already been turning since 2000. Last month's contract "represents the continuation of Gamesa Eólica supplies to China, a country with growth expectations of 900 MW 2003-2007," states Gamesa. In September, Gamesa sold 12, 850 kW turbines to another Chinese power firm, Ningxia Electric Power Corporation.
