Gamesa in UK
A world-leading turbine manufacturer Gamesa’s research and design is opened.
A new £12.5 million (14 million euros) centre to develop next-generation offshore wind technology in Scotland was officially opened today by First Minister Alex Salmond and Jorge Calvet, Chairman and CEO of leading international turbine manufacturer Gamesa.
The Spanish-based company has located its Offshore Wind Technology Centre at Strathclyde Business Park, in Bellshill, some eight miles from Glasgow city centre and is already employing 40 engineers. Gamesa hopes to be employing more than 100 staff by the end of this year, rising to 180 within three years.
Work at the Technology Centre is dedicated to the design and development of the company’s offshore wind platform G14X-6-7.0 MW.
“Our commitment is strong and we are ready to play a role in the offshore wind market. Our Offshore Wind Technology Centre in Glasgow represents an important step in this strategy. Our offshore plans could generate significant local, skilled and sustainable jobs over the coming years.
Agreement with the University of Strathclyde
Gamesa has signed a strategic research partnership agreement with the University of Strathclyde for a research cluster in the Doctoral Training Centre of Wind Energy Systems.
Gamesa is working to launch two offshore platforms - G11X-5.0 MW and G14X-6/7.0 MW – and has announced that the UK will be the centre of its offshore wind business, with plans to invest over 150 million euro here by 2014. The company estimates the construction and development of its offshore wind business in the United Kingdom will create over 1,000 direct jobs and another 800 indirect jobs at local suppliers.
The Offshore Technology Centre of Gamesa is supported by £1.5 million of Regional Selective Assistance funding from the Scottish Government. It was officially opened this evening by the First Minister and Gamesa’s Chairman and CEO, Jorge Calvet, following the two-day Scottish Low Carbon Investment Conference in Edinburgh at which both spoke.
Gamesa plans the construction of a blade manufacturing plant in United Kingdom (location, under study) and engaging in offshore logistics from a number of UK ports, around which it will locate its wind turbine O&M operations.
