Gamesa has signed two new contracts, awarded through an international tender, with the New Renewable Energy Authority (NREA), for the construction of two wind farms (241MW) in Zafarana, Egypt, on the shores of the Red Sea.

The subscription of these two new contracts, are worth more than € 279 million.
