Gamesa equips wind projects in Brazil

The 2 MW machines of type G8X for the nine Brazilian wind farms will be delivered in 2011 and 2012. Gamesa will be responsible for the erection of the turbines and putting them into operation, as well as the maintenance for two years. The agreement was signed after the Spanish energy group Iberdrola, together with the Brazilian utility Neoenergía, received a contract to realize 258 MW of wind power capacity. For Gamesa, this is the first contract in Brazil. The company opened its branch in Sao Paulo only recently.

Sometimes one and one add up to more than the mere addition of numbers. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of rotor blades is a complex and demanding task that requires very good hardware as well as professional data analysis in order to be able to make really precise and early statements about structural damage to the rotor blade. For this reason, two specialists have now joined forces to offer wind farm operators the best possible combination of forces on the market.
