Gamesa Enters Jamaican Wind Market

Posted by Shanelle Weir on January 19, 2015

Gamesa has entered the Jamaican wind market with a turnkey contract to build the 24MW Wigton 3 project.

The deal with Wigton Windfarm Limited, a subsidiary of energy company Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica, covers supply and installation of 12 of the Spanish manufacturer’s G80 2MW turbines.

Deliveries are slated in the third quarter this year and the facility is expected to be commissioned by February 2016.

At present, renewable sources account for roughly 9% of Jamaica’s electricity mix. Under the country’s National Energy Plan for 2009-2030, Jamaica expects this to rise to 12.5% in 2015 and to 20% by 2030.

Gamesa has to date installed more than 200MW in the Caribbean and Central America, operating in Honduras, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Cuba and Puerto Rico.
