Spanish turbine manufacturer Made Tecnologías has clinched a second order for its 1.32 MW machine, the AE 61. The EUR 70 million contract with developer Energías y Recursos Ambientales (EyRA) is for 84 turbines to go up at four plant in the Palencia province of Castile and León. The deal comes on the heels of December's order to supply 14, AE 61 turbines to the 18.48 MW Sierra del Cortado development, also in Castile and León. Made, entirely owned by Spain's largest utility, Endesa, is the only Spanish turbine manufacturer so far to announce firm orders for megawatt technology. Made says it has letters of intent for a further 47, AE 61 machines; 23 for developer Terranova in Catalonia; 15 for a project at San Gorgonio in California, and nine for France's Oupia development. In Spain, only Nordex and Enron Wind have installed series-produced megawatt units, though all the major wind turbine suppliers are operating megawatt class prototypes.
