GES is a construction company specialized in renewable energy with global experience. The company offers full EPC services. GES has constructed more than 13,000 MW of wind energy all around the world. The company covers all activities needed to accomplish the complete BOP, going with the customer through the whole value chain.
GES is involved in the project from the very first stages, developing the basic and detailed engineering and the associated infrastructures, both for the wind farm and substation. The company develops implications and execution plans. In the construction phase, GES caries out the civil and electrical works, as well as the substation and high voltage grid.
The company’s customers include the main turbine manufacturers, utilities, Independent Power Producers (IPPs), developers and investors.
GES has a wide experience in executing all civil works involved in a complete construction of a wind farm (roads, platforms, foundations, médium voltage trenches, and substations). The execution team ensures all works are executing following the internal procedures of the company, ensuring the highest H&S and Quality standards for the industry, all over the world.
GES supplies the installation and commissions all electrical equipment needed for a wind farm, as well as for a substation (switches, measure equipment, transformers, médium a low voltage, protections…). GES can also provide the médium and high voltage of the wind farm.
Location: Muxia, España
Power: 68 MW
Execution schedule:11 meses
The project was executed during the Winter, a very rainy season in Galicia.
The wind farm is surrounded by many small towns.
The works were made under big archeological restrictions, more than 31 cataloged archeological remains.
The works should coexist with the penguins of the Sant James Way, one of the paths goes from Finisterre to Muxia.
The execution should care about private property. More than 1500 landowners and 400.000 m2 of wood cutting and its corresponding wood management, should be coordinated.
A conscious selection of the best materials for the project execution. Transport logistic management for the support of external personnel to firm the roads in any weather condition.
The project management was sensitive to the inhabitants of the área. A multiskilled team from Galicia and with a wide experience in this kind of rural environment.
Awareness and information to the whole team about the location and restriction of the archeological remains. Daily coordination with the archeological team.
The project was carefully conducted to avoid any interference to the pilgrims, a speed limit has been established for vehicles for an absolute respect for pedestrians. Cooperation with pilgrims, who frequently get lost in the forest, orienting them
There was a person exclusively dedicated to attend the more than 1500 landowners in the field. Cooperation to try to affect as less landowner as possible.
Thanks to a local team with more than 15 years of experiences in Galician wind farms, aware of the local peculiarities the project could be executed in harmony with the community without significant claims.
The team knew the weather conditions that could be expected during the Galician Winter and the material performance under that conditions, which made it possible to take the correct decisions to commit the works on time, despite the fact that the Winter was the rainiest one registered.
Location: Coahuila, México
Power: 199 MW
Execution time: Enero de 2016-Enero de 2017
One of the most advanced wind farms in the world
This is the first wind farm in the Coahuila state in Mexico.
the project has obtained all the environmental permits for the construction and operation of the wind farm. With the construction of this wind farm, Coahuila contributes to the development of the renewable energies in Mexico, to fulfill the international agreements for the mitigation and adjustment of the climate change.
Is was a huge project with a very tight time schedule, almost a year.
the area is near the municipalities of General Cepeda and Ramos Arizpe in Coahuila. There was no wind farm constructed in the area until now.
this was the first project EDPR constructed in Mexico. The utility trusted GES for this strategic project.
The execution was speeded up, thanks to the previous engineering work, which led to several foundation optimizations and the customization of the geotechnical study, opting to construct the different kinds of foundation.
Simultaneous work at different areas of the wind farm to get things done faster.
Resources coordination was key for a time optimation. An intermediate logistic center was needed to get the material faster for each of the areas.
Successful management of the CFE (Mexican electric entity) for the coordination of the power outage and the construction.
the project could be executed in a positive environment with the community and unions. GES cooperated with EDPR to develop the safety conditions.
Power: 112 MW
Execution schedule: November 2015 - November 2016
Cooperating with the local community
Successfully completion of the wind farm without accidents and with satisfactory quality standards.
Location: Los Ángeles, Chile
Wind turbine: Goldwind 1500 KW Wind Turbine Generator System
Power: 33 MW
Execution time: December 2012 - December 2013
Minimizing the local impact through cooperation with the community
Location: Ovalle, Chile
Wind turbine: 15 V100 2MW T80 + 30 V90 2MW T80
Power: 90 MW
Execution time: June 2012 - December 2012
A record project
BOP was accomplished within the contractual scope and GES successfully assembled and installed the 45 turbines on time. The project was completed in a record time of 6 months and with no accidents.
Client: ENEL Green Power
Location: Calama, Chile
Power: 112 MW
Execution time: June 2016 - December 2016
Efficient solutions to deal with climatic difficulties
Despite all the issues and the bad weather conditions during the execution, the project was completed in time applying GES Quality and Health and Safety standards.
Location: Santo Domingo del intenio (Oaxaca, México)
Power: 101 MW
Wind turbine: V-90.2 MW
Schedule: September 2010 - July 2012
Succeeding with the first phase of a huge new 400 MW wind farm in Mexico
Due to the speed and efficiency of our assembly processes, we were able to complete the project more quickly than had been anticipated – which led to a substantial saving in the cost of the crane rental. Also, the project was completed without any accidents. And the wind farm can now be relied upon to deliver more than 4,000 wind hours each year.
