Gamesa completes 1,000th nacelle at its Pennsylvania manufacturing plant

E-mail Print
Gamesa announced the completion and shipment of its 1,000th nacelle manufactured at its Fairless Hills plant in southeastern Pennsylvania. The finished nacelle is among the 152 G90X-2.0 MW wind turbines comprising the 304MW Blue Creek Wind Farm in Van Wert and Paulding counties in western Ohio.

The project, which is owned by Iberdrola Renewables, is under construction and expected to be online by end of 2011. Gamesa initially invested US$ 34 million to convert 20-plus acres of a former U.S. Steel industrial site from a brownfield into a state-of-the-art manufacturing center for nacelles. The company continues to invest in that facility in Bucks County. Renovations at the plant began in the spring of 2006 with production starting later that same year. In 2010, the company completed upgrades at the Fairless Hills plant that included the introduction of a moving production line as part of their lean manufacturing strategy. Gamesa started manufacturing G90X-2.0 MW turbines in the United States in 2009. More recently, the nacelles facility started producing the newest addition to the G9X-2.0 MW platform, the G97-2.0 MW Class IIIA nacelle for use in low-wind sites.
