The company will build two wind farms of 50MW and 108MW in the states of Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh for an independent power producer.

Both the wind farms will feature 25 and 54 of Gamesa's G97 2MW Class S turbines, which are designed specifically for the slow wind speed sites in India.

The company will handle all the infrastructure required for the wind farms installation and operation. It will maintain the two facilities under long-term service contracts after their planned commissioning in July 2015 and February 2016.

Gamesa will also deliver a further 18 G97 2MW turbines to four wind farms to be built in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.

The contracts also include medium and long-term operation and maintenance (O&M) services.

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

Gamesa has erected more than 1,700 MW of turbines in India to date and currently services around 1,450MW under O&M agreements. The company has also developed over 1GW of wind schemes across the country.
