Under this contract, Gamesa will be responsible for engineering & design, supply of inverters, erection and commissioning of the 12MW photovoltaic solar plants which will start its operation by the first quarter of 2016.

Gamesa has received an order from Rafisa, trustee of the Financiero Arias Trust, backed and managed by Uruguay's state utility, UTE, for the turnkey construction of a 70-MW wind farm in Uruguay.

Under the scope of the agreement, the company will supply, install and commission 35 G114-2.0 MW turbines at the Colonia Arias wind farm located in the department of Flores, as well as handling the civil works and electrical installations needed to set up and operate this development.

The turbines are due for delivery next December so the project can be commissioned during the second quarter of 2017. In addition, Gamesa will operate and maintain the wind complex for its first 15 years in operation.

This is the second wind farm to be built by Gamesa under the scope of the projects being developed by state utility UTE, having reached an agreement last year for the development of the Valentines wind farm (also a 70 MW facility, equipped with the same turbine model), which will be commissioned during the second half of 2016.
