The deal with Hebei Construction & Investment Group (HCIG) will see Gamesa supply 50 of its G97-2MW turbines for the project, situated in Zhangjiakou, in the province of Hebei.

Gamesa plans to deliver the turbines in the third quarter of 2015, while the wind farm is expected to start operations in the following quarter.

Gamesa has won orders from HCIG totaling 250MW since 2008. The company has installed more than 3.6GW of wind-power equipment in China and services about 1GW.

Earlier this year, HCIG awarded a contract to Gamesa for the supply of 25 G97 2MW turbines at the Nandianziliang wind complex in the Shanxi province, northern China.

Gamesa started operations in China in 2000 and secured contracts to deliver 450MW of wind turbines in the country in 2014.

China invested about $90bn into its solar and wind sectors in 2014. The country's total wind power capacity is reported to be bigger than that of the UK's entire electricity supply.
