Gamesa has won a contract to supply turbines with a total generating capacity of 10MW for a wind farm being developed by Western Wind Energy in Arizona, US.

The company said that the power from the project will be sold to UniSource Electric.

This is the second contract Gamesa has signed with Western Wind Energy in the last month and its first contract in Arizona.

The farm will be comprised of five G90-2.0MW wind turbines on 78m towers.

Gamesa will oversee the wind turbine installation, which is planned for April 2011.

Western Wind Energy is utilizing funds from the Section 1603 program to partially fund the construction of this wind farm.

This program, created as part of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) that was enacted in February 2009, provides an optional cash payment for developers in lieu of a 30% investment tax credit (ITC) and production tax credit (PTC).
