The contract with CGN Wind Energy, which is a subsidiary of China’s General Nuclear Power Group, covers installation of 50xG97 2MW turbines.

Gamesa said the turbines, which are slated for delivery in the last quarter of 2014, are specifically configured for high-altitude locations.

The G97-2MW turbines are part of the Gamesa 2.0-2.5MW platform, more than 16,000MW of which have been installed globally.

The company has also agreed for the potential supply of another 100MW in 2015 for the project’s second phase.

Gamesa CEO in China José Antonio Miranda said the agreement marks an important step in the company’s sales and product strategy in the Asian country, where it recently secured another two contracts for 97.3MW.

"The Chinese wind market offers spectacular growth prospects," Miranda said.

Gamesa has deployed 3,500MW of turbines in China since 2000 and the company is currently providing services for 850MW in the country.
