The company will deploy 30 turbines at Jaisalmer region of Rajasthan, and other 50 at Basavanabagewadi, in Karnataka. Gamesa will operate and maintain all the turbines.

Gamesa plans to deliver the turbines in the first quarter of 2015 and the wind farms are anticipated to be commissioned by June 2015.

The first contract is included in a new framework agreement signed by Gamesa and Greenko to commission 300MW wind energy projects in India.

The 140MW second phase is expected to be secured during the second quarter of 2015 in various wind farms situated in the states of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

Under the second contract with CLP India, Gamesa will build a 100MW wind farm at Chandgargh, Madhya Pradesh.

Gamesa will install 50 of its G97-2.0 MW turbines and service them. The company will handle the entire infrastructure required to install and operate the facility.

The company plans to deliver the turbines in the first half of 2015 and the wind farm is expected to be commissioned in December 2015.

Gamesa chairman and managing director in India Ramesh Kymal said: "These new order wins reinforce our leadership position in India, a rapidly-growing market, and evidence the stock placed by customers in Gamesa's technology and experience."
