Over 220 MW of new wind energy capacity will be installed by Gamesa in the Indian states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Karnataka, as per a recent agreement between the wind energy company and three large independent regional power producers.

The new capacity will be made up of 110 of the company’s G97 2.0 MW turbines — spread out amongst five different wind farms in the aforementioned regions.

The turbines will be manufactured at local factories in India, and are expected to be delivered in March 2015. Gamesa will also be handling all of the O&M services for the wind farms in question over the long term.

Gamesa provides further details:

These three new contracts strengthen Gamesa’s orderbook from independent power producers in the Indian wind energy segment, boosting its local reputation as a leading turbine manufacturer.

Gamesa is present in India as technology provider and wind farm developer. The company, which ended 2013 as the leading wind turbine OEM in India by market share, has installed over 1,100 MW and manages capacity of more than 850 MW under O&M agreements. India represented 33% of Gamesa’s sales in Q1 2014.

“These valuable orders from independent power producers prove our expertise and clearly signify our strong market standing in Indian wind industry. We are looking forward to have such esteemed collaborations in the future,” explained Ramesh Kymal, Gamesa’s Chairman and Managing Director in India.

In related news, Gamesa recently hit a new milestone with regard to its total installed wind energy capacity to date — over 30 GW of the company’s wind turbines have now been installed worldwide.
