GE to supply 500MW of wind turbines to PPM Energy

Under two recent agreements GE Energy will deliver approximately 500MW of GE 1.5MW wind turbines for projects planned by PPM Energy during 2006 and 2007. The recent agreements with PPM call for a total of 334 GE 1.5MW units. PPM Energy, which is based in Portland, Oregon, is part of the ScottishPower group of companies. With a portfolio of more than 1,600MW of wind power under its control in operation or under construction, PPM Energy is well on its way towards its goal of bringing 2,300MW of new wind power to market by 2010.

Gamesa enters the Scandinavian market

Gamesa Energía has signed its entry into the Scandinavian wind energy market on entering into a contract with the Swedish electrical supply company Vattenfall. The agreement consists in the undertaking to sell to Vattenfall the wind farms currently being developed, with a total installed wind power capacity of 200MW during the 2005-2010 period. The contract, that can reach approximately € 240 million, was signed in Madrid by Gordan Dandanell, Vattenfall's Head of Investment and Project Development and by Fernando Ferrando, on behalf of Gamesa. For Gamesa, this agreement is a step in their wind farm development strategy, as it implies entry into a new market, the Scandinavian one, from which it had so far been absent, in partnership with the Swedish national company.
