Gamesa to build a 50-MW wind farm for ReNew Power in India under a turnkey arrangement
Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind energy, has secured a new order in India from ReNew Power, one of India’s leading independent power producers (IPP), for the EPC construction of a 50-MW wind farm located in Bijapur, in the state of Karnataka.The agreement signed with ReNew Power encompasses the installation of 25 G114-2.0 MW class S turbines. With a tower height of 106 metres, this new turbine variant is custom-designed for the low wind speed sites typical of India.
Since it is a turnkey contract, Gamesa will also provide the infrastructure needed to install and operate the facility. The wind farm’s commissioning is scheduled for March 2017.This new contract strengthens Gamesa’s relationship with ReNew Power, with which it has already signed firm orders for the supply of close to 300 MW.
