Gamesa Technology Corp., Inc., and the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are teaming up to study and test a variety of components and systems that will guide development of the next generation of wind turbines designed specifically for the US marketplace.

Gamesa and NREL will collaborate on work in three key areas: developing new wind turbine components and rotors for the U.S. market; researching and testing the performance of new control strategies; and devising models that will help advance the development of offshore wind in U.S. coastal waters. Gamesa already has installed and commissioned a G97 Class IIIA 2.0MW test wind turbine at NREL’s National Wind Technology Center near Boulder, Colorado. Full project testing on the entire slate of programs is set to begin in January 2012. The core provisions of the public-private partnership run through 2013, with options for two additional years of collaboration.
