Gamesa Posts 54% Jump In India Order Intake In 2015

India continues to be a major market for global wind energy giant Gamesa, posting impressive growth in 2015.

Gamesa recently reported that it secured 130 MW in fresh orders for three different projects in India. With these projects Gamesa’s total order intake in the country during 2015 surpassed 1,300 MW, an increase of 54% over 2014.

Gamesa will supply 25 units of its G97-2.0 wind turbine for a project in Gujarat which is expected to be commissioned by September this year. Two other projects will see the company deliver a total of 40 units of G97-2.0 wind turbine in Madhya Pradesh. One of these projects shall use a variant of the G97 turbine. The hub height of this variant will be 104 meters and has been specifically designed to maximum output at low wind speed sites. Both these projects are expected to be commissioned by the first quarter of this year.

In a press release, the company stated that these fresh orders reinforce its position in the Indian wind energy market as the leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM), in terms of market share, for the last two years.

In 2014, Gamesa commissioned a fourth of the 2.3 GW wind energy capacity commissioned in India that year, with Suzlon Energy and Wind World India taking second and third spot respectively.

Gamesa is bullish on India’s renewable energy story. India plans to increase the installed wind energy capacity by almost 3 times by 2022 to 60 GW. The company has also entered the solar power market in India. As an EPC contractor, it recently commissioned its first solar power project (10 MW) in the state of Tamil Nadu. The company has subsequently secured 3 more EPC orders for 23 MW solar PV projects.
