In addition, the company will also manufacture Nacelles (800 MW capacity), hubs, blades (800 MW capacity) and towers (800 MW capacity).

The Commissioning of the Barwani facility is scheduled in April 2015 to March 2016.

In June 2014, Inox Wind secured a 170 MW order from Continuum Wind Energy based in Singapore for wind projects to be developed in and around Ratlam and Mandsaur districts of Madhya Pradesh.

The order, valued in excess of Rs 900 crore was one of the largest wind turbine orders in the country for a single project.

Inox Wind is a fully integrated player in the wind energy market with blades and towers manufacturing plants near Ahmedabad and hubs and nacelles plant at Himachal Pradesh.

INOX plans to set up 2500-3000 MW in next two years.

Over the coming years, Madhya Pradesh may see a development of 500-600 MW per annum on a sustained basis with great potential for wind energy in the state.

The MP government has kept a target of 10 GW of renewable energy growth in the state.
