Published 22 February 2018

Senvion has secured a contract from ReNew Power to supply wind turbines for the 101.2MW Bhuwad wind project to be located in Gujarat, India.

The Bhuwad Wind Project is part of Round 2 bidding from Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited - a company of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India.

The project will comprise 44 Senvion 2.3M120 turbines at 120m height which will produce enough clean energy to supply the power needs of almost 100,000 Indian homes.
