Gamesa has signed a contract with NREA (New & Renewable Energy Authority) to deliver 200 MW of turbines to wind energy projects in the Gulf of El-Zayt, on Egypt's Red Sea coast. With the contract awarded to Gamesa, this international public tender is complete, after it drew bids from the world's major turbine manufacturers. The project is financed by multilateral funding from Germany's kfW Development Bank, the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Union via the Neighbourhood Investment Facility (NIF). NREA was advised by Danish consulting firm Carl Bro (Grontmij). Gamesa will supply a total of 100 of its G80-2.0 MW turbines. It will also perform turbine assembly, erection and start-up services and provide operation and maintenance services for a period of five years. Gamesa will begin manufacturing the turbines destined for this contract in 2012, with delivery scheduled over the course of 2013.

The G9X-2.0 MW turbine is one of the most versatile machines on the market. Its sturdiness, excellent reliability and adaptability to any type of terrain or wind conditions of some of its models, namely the G80-2.0 MW, make it an outstanding choice for desert sites, corrosive environments and high temperatures, all characteristics of the Egyptian market. Gamesa has operated in Egypt since 2003, when it signed its first contract to supply wind turbines to Zafarana wind farm. The company is the leader market, having installed 406 MW of turbine capacity in Egypt. Currently handles maintenance services at four wind farms there.
