Offgrid project in Galápagos

Gamesa completed its first Offgrid hybrid project in 2007 in Galápagos Islands (Ecuador) operating successfully ever since.

In this Project, Gamesa integrated three wind turbine generators –totaling 2.4 MW- with three existing diesel generators with 1.8 MW capacity.

  • Three wind turbines, 800 kW each.
  • Three new control cabinets for the existing diesel generators.
  • Grid control and integration of wind-diesel plant.
  • SCADA: supervisory control and data acquisition system.

Wind generation achieves 36% of the total electricity consumed in the island, equivalent to 8 million liters of fuel and 20,300 tons of CO2.
