Spain\'s Gamesa Corporacion Tecnologica, one of the world\'s largest wind turbine developers, has announced it has signed its second contract with Western Wind Energy Corporation in as many months.|
Gamesa will deliver five G90-2.0 MW wind turbines for Western Wind Energy\'s project in Kingman, Arizona.
Canadian wind project developer Western Wind Energy is developing the 10 MW wind farm for Arizona utility Unisource Energy Services, a subsidary of UniSource Electric Inc.
UniSource Energy\'s principal subsidiary, Tucson Electric Power (TEP), provides safe, reliable power to more than 400,000 customers in southern Arizona. Fellow subsidiary UniSource Energy Services (UES) provides natural gas and electric service to about 236,000 customers in 30 communities across Arizona. UES utility services are offered through its operating subsidiaries, UNS Gas and UNS Electric.
As part of the contract Gamesa will oversee installation of the wind turbines in April 2011.
In December 2010 Gamesa signed a contract to supply 60 wind turbines with a combined generating capacity of 120 MW to Western Wind Energy for its Windstar wind project in the Tehachapi Pass in Southern California.
This move extends Gamesa\'s installations in the United States, while marking its first installation in Arizona. The company also operates two manufacturing plants in Pennsylvania with a combined annual production capacity of 1,000 MW.
Western Wind Energy produces clean, renewable energy from more than 500 wind turbine generators located in Tehachapi and San Gorgonio Pass, California. Currently, Western Wind Energy\'s annual energy output is approximately 34.5 MW.
Western Wind Energy is in the business of acquiring exceptional land sites, capital and technology for the production of electricity from renewable sources.
Western Wind Energy conducts its operations in California, Arizona, Ontario, and Puerto Rico through various wholly owned subsidiaries. Management of Western Wind Energy includes individuals involved in the operations and ownership of utility scale wind energy facilities in California since 1981.
