Spanish wind turbine manufacturer Gamesa recently received an order from India’s independent power producer ReNew Wind Energy P Ltd, a subsidiary of ReNew Power, for a total for 74 megawatts (MW).
According to the website, the order will include 50MW of the G97-2.0MW wind turbines, plus 24.65 of the G58-850 kilowatt (KW) turbines as part of the agreement with ReNew Power.
The project will be finished by the end of this year in Maharashtra, Gamesa 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,” said Indian Gamasa Chairman and Managing Director Ramesh Kymal in a statement.
“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.”
Meanwhile, CEO of ReNew Power Sumant Sinha had this to say about the deal according to the Gamesa website:
“We are glad to partner with trusted manufacturer such as Gamesa and look forward to many years of good performance from new G97-2.0 MW machines. With this order we further establish the vision of rapidly expanding our footprint in the growing Indian wind energy market. This is another such partnership and an important step towards positioning ReNew as one of the leading Renewable IPP in India.”
