Gamesa secures 200MW wind turbine delivery contract in India

CTBR Staff Writer Published 04 November 2015

Spanish manufacturer Gamesa has secured a contract from Ostro Energy to supply wind turbines for two 100MW wind power projects in India.

The contract will require Gamesa to supply and install 50 units of its G97-2.0MW class S turbines for each project.

The turbines will be installed at the Amba wind farm in Madhya Pradesh and the Nimbagallu wind farm in Andhra Pradesh.

The specified Gamesa turbine with a tower height of 104m is designed for low wind speed sites typical of India.

The Amba project and the Nimbagallu wind project will become operational in February 2017 and December 2016 respectively.

Gamesa India operations chairman and managing director Ramesh Kymal said: "Gamesa has astutely leveraged its experience as wind farm developer and its broad range of products tailored to the idiosyncrasies of each market to become the number-one OEM in India, one of Gamesa's key regions."

The company will be responsible for all infrastructure required for installation of the turbines and operations for the project.

With the latest deal, Gamesa's order intake in India increases to 896MW this year, with around 450MW having been generated in the third quarter.

Gamesa recently secured a 78MW turbine supply order for a wind power project in New York, US.

Under the terms of the contract, the company will deliver 37 of its G114-2.1 MW turbines in 2016.
