The company will install 104 of its G114-2MW turbines at the wind farm, which will be built in Perquimans and Pasquotank counties.

Gamesa will be responsible for supply, transport, construction supervision and commissioning of the turbines.

The Spanish manufacturer plans to start turbine deliveries in the second quarter of 2016, with the project expected to go online by the end of that year.

The wind farm is estimated to generate about 670,000 MWh of energy per year, enough to power over 61,000 homes.

Amazon Web Services will use the energy generated from the wind farm to power its cloud data centers.

Gamesa CEO in the US Borja Negro said: "This agreement reinforces Gamesa's presence in the United States and strengthens the long-standing relationship we have with Iberdrola Renewables globally and in North America."

Upon completion of the project, Gamesa will have delivered about 2.3GW to Iberdrola Renewables in the US.

Gamesa said the latest deal is the largest supply contract from the US for its G114-2MW turbine. The company has to date installed over 4GW of capacity in the country.
