The Alaiz wind turbine is the second G10X-4.5 MW prototype Gamesa has erected in Spain with the aim of achieving the highest possible levels of availability, energy efficiency and network codes for this turbine system.

The wind turbine's light weight, despite its 120 m tower and 62.5 m blades, makes it as easy to handle as a 2 MW wind turbine, Gamesa says.
