DEWI OCC certifies Gamesa G114-2.5 MW turbine

(PresseBox) (Paris, ) DEWI OCC, the accredited independent certification body of the UL/DEWI-group, has issued the type certification for G114-2.5 MW turbine of Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind energy. Hergen Bolte, head of DEWI-OCC, handed the certification in person to José Antonio Malumbres, Gamesa's Chief Technology Officer, during the EWEA 2015 trade fair, one of the sector's hallmark events that is taking place in Paris, France, between November, 17 and 20, 2015.

This milestone marks the culmination of the turbine's certification process in close team work with the UL/DEWI experts and endorses the platform's technology. "A sizeable team of Gamesa, together with the engineers from UL/DEWI have displayed exemplary collaboration during the certification process to assure a smooth and effective launch into the market", explained José Antonio Malumbres.

The first prototype, located in Alaiz (Navarra, Spain), began to generate power in June of this year. The new G114-2.5 MW turbine, designed for class II wind speeds, is underpinned by proven technology, validated in the Gamesa 2.0 MW platform, one of the most reliable in the market, having been installed in 35 countries (cumulative installed capacity: 20.9 GW). It comes with a longer blade and increases nominal capacity to 2.5 MW, enabling it to produce 29% more power than the G97-2.0 MW, while lowering the cost of energy by 10%.

To date, Gamesa has already secured orders for the supply of 280 MW of this new model to wind farms being developed in Sweden, Belgium, the UK and Turkey.
