By Editor


Gamesa India, a renewable energy provider in India, has won a new order for 50 MW turnkey wind power project with Perpetual Investment, a group entity of Atria Power.

The power plant will be developed at Kayathar in Tamilnadu.

Gamesa will handle the entire infrastructure needed to operate the project with the supply, erection and commissioning of 25 units of G97 2.0 MW wind turbines with a hub height of 104m, the company said.

This project will be commissioned by March 2016.

The G97-2.0 MW product is custom-designed for the low wind sites in India.

The project will add to the country’s target of 20 percent energy generation from renewable sources by 2022.

C.S. Sunder Raju, director, Atria Brindavan Power, said, “Our goal of adding 500 MW over the next 18 months receives a major impetus with this partnership. We are confident of Gamesa delivering a great solution in not just this project but for all our future developments as well.”

Gamesa has installed over 2,100 MW and services more than 1,700 MW under O&M agreements. In addition, in its capacity as wind farm developer, it has developed over 1300 MW.

The announcement comes shortly after Gamesa announced the commissioning of its first solar project in India.

Recently the company also signed a twin agreement with Ostro Energy for turnkey supply and erection and commissioning of 200 MW projects at its Amba site in Madhya Pradesh and Nimbagallu site in Andhra Pradesh.
