The company will install 100 of its G97-2.0 MW class S turbines, purpose-designed for the Indian market.
Gamesa has attained another milestone in its bid to consolidate its leadership of the Indian market: it has been contracted 1by the renewable energy player, Ostro Energy, to build two 100-MW wind farms under a turnkey arrangement. With this order, the company’s order intake in India, where it is the leading OEM, rises to 896 MW year to date, with almost 450 MW generated in the third quarter alone.
Under the terms of the contract signed with Ostro Energy, Gamesa will install 50 of its G97-2.0 MW class S turbines at the Amba wind farm, located in the province of Madhya Pradesh, and a further 50 turbines of the same make at the Nimbagallu wind farm, in Andhra Pradesh.
With a tower height of 104 metres, this new turbine variant -certified by TÜV NORD- is custom-designed for the low wind speed sites typical of India.
Given the fact that it is a turnkey contract, Gamesa will handle all of the infrastructure needed to install and operate the project. The Nimbagallu wind farm is due for commissioning in December 2016, while the Amba project should be online by February 2017.
