- The 270 wind turbines would be helping ReNew Power set up a capacity of 567 MW for its two wind-power facilities.
- Siemens Gamesa would also be facilitating infrastructure to help install & operate both wind-energy farms.
Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (Siemens Gamesa), a Spanish renewable energy company, has reportedly announced that it has obtained a new 270 wind turbine order from Indian renewable energy firm, ReNew Power Limited (ReNew Power).
Reports cite, the 270 wind turbines would be helping ReNew Power set up a capacity of about 567 MW for its two wind-power facilities. Moreover, Siemens Gamesa would also be facilitating ReNew with additional infrastructure to help it install & operate both of the wind-energy facilities.
According to a press release by Siemens Gamesa
, the company would be supplying, installing & commissioning over 127 SG 2.1-122 wind turbines for ReNew’s project located in Bhuj, Gujarat and over 143 SG 2.1-122 wind turbines for the second project located in Davanagere, Karnataka. With more than 1 GW of contracted wind project capacity for ReNew, SGRE stands as one of the company’s trusted renewable energy partners in India.
India reportedly houses the fourth-biggest base of installed wind power capacity in the world. The nation has over 300 GW of onshore wind-power potential, from which just 35 GW capacity has been tapped. The Indian Government is further working on achieving a target of installing 65 GW of wind-energy capacity by 2022.
Siemens Gamesa has reportedly installed 5,500 MW capacity wind power turbines across India over the last ten years. The firm operates two wind turbine blade manufacturing plants in Halol, Gujarat as well as Nellore, Andhra Pradesh. Moreover, the company owns a nacelle factory, which is in Mamandur located near Chennai, as well as an operation & maintenance facility Red Hills, Tamil Nadu.
According to reports, the financial terms related to the wind turbine order have not been revealed by both the companies yet.
