Siemens Gamesa has signed a deal with Vena Energy to supply its 3.X platform turbines for a 133 MW wind project in Koppal District, Karnataka, India.
In total, the company will deliver 37 SG 3.6-145 wind turbines for the Blended Wind Power Project located at Gudadur in Karnataka state. The project installation is expected during Siemens Gamesa’s financial year 2023.
Siemens Gamesa and Vena Energy first partnered in 2015 with a 154 MW wind farm in Andhra Pradesh state. Since then, Vena Energy has added over 300 MW of wind power projects in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat.
Following this latest order for the SG 3.6-145 turbines, Vena Energy’s portfolio with Siemens Gamesa in India will stand close to 600 MW.
“We have worked closely since 2015 and are confident of extending this longstanding partnership in the years to come,” said Navin Dewaji, India CEO of Siemens Gamesa.
“With this project, Vena Energy’s capacity in India will reach 1,162 MW, and reinforces our commitment towards accelerating the green energy transition locally,” said Monika Rathi, Head of Vena Energy India.
Siemens Gamesa launched this new platform in 2020 in the face of an ongoing pandemic and announced orders totalling 925 MW last year. This new deal takes order entry for the Siemen Gamesa 3.X platform in India past the 1 GW mark.
Siemens Gamesa has blade factories in Nellore (Andhra Pradesh), a nacelle factory in Mamandur (Chennai, Tamil Nadu), and an operations and maintenance center in Red Hills (Chennai, Tamil Nadu). The company is market leader with a 40 percent market share, according to consultancy Wood Mackenzie.
