As part of its offshore strategy, Gamesa (Madrid, Spain) has recently developed its first offshore prototype wind turbine. Global Energy Services (GES, Erandio-Vizcaya, Spain) has provided services for the installation and commission of the wind turbine for the Spanish manufacturer.

The G128-5.0 turbine has been assembled in the Arigana Quay, in the Canary Islands. The different components of the 5 MW turbine were produced in Spain and shipped to the Canary Islands. The 62.5m rotor blades are the largest ever produced and transported in Spain and some of the largest in Europe.

GES has an unmatched track record in turbine installation projects which include offshore wind operations, and the company says this project reinforces its expertise as an offshore service provider.
