Gamesa 5MW prototype heads for Gran Canaria

Components arrive in Bilbao for transport to port test site

All major components for Gamesa’s 5MW offshore turbine have arrived at the port of Bilbao. They will be transported to Gran Canaria for installation at a quayside location in the port of Arinaga for a certification test.

The Spanish turbine manufacturer’s G128 5.0MW model features 62.5m blades. It reflects Gamesa’s efforts to gain a foothold in the offshore turbine market, currently dominated by Siemens. The design was accredited earlier this year, by Det Norske Veritas (DNV).
