CTBR Staff Writer Published 23 July 2015

India based independent power producer Orange has awarded a 250MW wind turbine contract to Spain-based Gamesa.

Under the contract, Gamesa will install 125 of its G97-2.0 MW Class S turbines at three wind farms being built in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

A 100MW wind farm is being built in the Ananthapur town of Andhra Pradesh, which is expected to be commissioned in March 2016.

Gamesa will supply, install and commission 25 G97-2.0 MW turbines at the 100MW Agar and 50MW Ratlam projects in Madhya Pradesh.

Both the wind farms are expected to go online in 2016.

As part of the contract, Gamesa will also provide the associated operation and maintenance services over the medium and long term.

Earlier this year, Gamesa won contracts to deliver turbines totalling 194MW to six wind farms in India.

The installed wind capacity in India is expected to increase to 40,000MW by the end of 2019 from about 23,000MW at present.

The Government of India is planning to increase the installed wind capacity to 60,000MW by 2022.

Gamesa has erected about 1,900 MW of turbines in India to date and currently services more than 1,850MW under O&M agreements.

The company has also developed more than 1.3GW of wind schemes across the country.
