Start of main content

22 years of experience and the installation of more than 35,200 MW worldwide have made Gamesa a global technology leader in the wind industry.

The company has its own wind turbine design and development capacity and is vertically integrated; Gamesa covers the entire process of conception, manufacturing, assembly, logistics, installation, commissioning and maintenance of wind generators.Tthe ability to custom-develop the key turbine parts ensures design excellence and the highest standards of quality, while compressing delivery times and enabling quicker technical support during maintenance.

Gamesa has global production centres in Spain and China and a complementary industrial presence in other local markets (india and brazil), as well as a broad commercial reach with offices in 21 countries, enabling it to respond to its customers' needs on all five continents.

Market-oriented products and focused on the reduction of CoE

The company has two product platforms tailored to meet its customers’ needs and bring down the cost of energy.

  • Gamesa 2.0 MW: multi-megawatt wind turbines from the Gamesa 2.0 MW platform improve competitive investment ratios per MW installed and Cost of Energy produced. This is possible thanks to the versatile combination of a 2.0 MW rated power generator with the option to choose from five rotor diameters: 80, 87, 90, 97 and 114 meters in order to reach maximum performance for all types of locations and wind conditions.
  • Gamesa 2.5 MW: in order to improve the cost of energy in the 2.0-3.0 MW category, Gamesa has launched its Gamesa 2.5 MW platform, the natural evolution of the 2.0 MW platform. With three new 106-, 114- and 126-meter rotors, new tower options and a power boost to 2.5 MW, the Gamesa 2.5 MW platform complements the Gamesa 2.0 MW product series, which has become a reference in the market, notable for excellent capacity factors and high profitability.
  • Gamesa 3.3 MW: the new G132-3.3 MW wind turbine for Class II sites is the first model of the new Gamesa 3.3 MW platform. This new generation of multi-megawatt turbines reaches the market to become the best solution in terms of Cost of Energy in the 3.0-3.3 MW segment.
  • Gamesa 5.0 MW: this platform, the evolution of the 4.5 MW, represents the next generation of Gamesa turbines. its innovative modular design and cutting-edge technology maximise reliability while complying with the most stringent international grid-connection codes and environmental standards.

Diversified sales

In a context of rising demand and supported by the group's sound commercial position, in 2015 activity rose 21% to 3,180 MWe, in line with the guidance for the year. The top regions for WTG sales (in MWs) were India (29% of the total) and Latin America (27%). Europe and the Rest of the World accounted for 18%, China for 13% and the US for 11%. Order intake amounted to 3,883 MW in 2015 (+17%), reflecting Gamesa's strong sales drive, and in line with the high end of the Business Plan target range for 2017.

This solid positioning in emerging markets pushed the company two spots higher, from seventh to fifth place, in the global ranking of OEMs (onshore & offshore), with a market share of 5.9% in 2015, up from 4.2% in 2014, published by international consultancy, MAKE. Stripping out the offshore market, Gamesa rises to fourth place, with a market share of 6.2%.

Specifically, the company ranked number one in India and Mexico, number two in Brazil and number one among western OEMs in China.

Gamesa continues strengthening its presence in the rest of the world. The company has opened up new markets in Jamaica, Thailand and Kuwait.

Wind farms

The ability to develop and build wind farms on a turnkey basis sets Gamesa apart in the marketplace, particularly in markets such as India and Mexico where the company has emerged as a benchmark player in the self-supply segment.

This activity includes all the tasks associated with the development of a wind power generation project: from site identification and permitting to the ultimate sale and maintenance of the facility.

Having developed and built 263 wind farms with aggregate capacity of 7,460 MW worldwide, this area is key to Gamesa's wind value chain as it provides a sales channel and a gateway into new markets and customer accounts.
