Indian energy firm selects 75MW of Spanish turbines for low wind site

ReNew Wind Energy chooses Gamesa turbines for wind farm in India

The turbine order will further boost EU technology being used to build wind power in India

Spanish turbine technology has been chosen to develop a wind farm in India. 74.65MW of Gamesa turbines are being used to build up the low-wind site in Maharashtra.

Indian firm ReNew Wind Energy has ordered the turbines, which includes 50MW of G97- 2.0MW and 24.65MW of Gamesa’s G58-850kW machines.

The G97-2.0 MW turbine, which Spanish firm Gamesa launched earlier this year, has been especially designed for low-wind sites such as Maharashtra. The company said the contract is the largest order for its G97-2.0 MW in the Indian state. 

Mr. Ramesh Kymal, chairman and managing director of Gamesa in India, said: “The new 74.65 MW order from ReNew Power to Gamesa India comes as a real booster dose for the overall wind energy sector, reassuring and strengthening the wind energy market confidence.

“With the induction of ReNew Power into the large customer base of Gamesa in India, our company further strengthens the credibility that enjoys in the growing Indian wind industry, he said. “With this order, Gamesa India’s overall presence and visibility would increase in the entire State of Maharashtra especially in the most successful G97-2.0 MW platform”. 

Sumant Sinha, chairman and CEO, ReNew Power, said the order will help the company move further into becoming a renewable energy leader in India. “With this order we further establish the vision of rapidly expanding our footprint in the growing Indian wind energy market,” he said. “This is another such partnership and an important step towards positioning ReNew as one of the leading Renewable IPP in India”.
