Gamesa has completed the installation of the first prototype of its G128-5.0MW onshore turbine at its R&D facility in Alaiz (Navarra, Spain).
The end of the assembly process triggers the start of the process of certifying the new turbine, slated for completion during the last quarter of this year. The plan is to install these turbines for the first time in a commercial wind farm in Salo (Finland), where the company will supply three units of the G128-5.0MW low-temperature model to TuuliWatti this year. Gamesa will also operate and maintain (O&M) this facility for 10 years. The G128-5.0MW wind turbine prototype has a rotor diameter of 128 metres and a total height of 184 metres.
