Gamesa to Supply 208 Megawatts Turbines to Amazon.com Wind Farm

Gamesa Corp. Tecnologica SA, Spain’s biggest wind-turbine maker, won a contract to supply its systems to a wind farm being built for Amazon.com Inc.

The turbine maker will supply 208 megawatts of its systems for the project in North Carolina’s Perquimans and Pasquotank counties, it said Thursday in a statement on its website, declining to disclose the value of the deal.

Amazon on July 13 hired the U.S. unit of Spanish energy company Iberdrola SA to build and run the wind farm. The project is expected to open in December 2016 when it will supply power to Amazon Web Services data centers.

Amazon’s cloud-computing unit in November set a goal to derive all of its power from renewables, up from about 25 percent currently. By the end of next year, it aims to reach 40 percent. The company in January agreed to buy power for 14 years from a 150-megawatt wind farm in Indiana.
