Spanish wind turbine-maker Siemens Gamesa has won orders from ReNew Power, an independent power producer (IPP), to supply turbines for two wind farms in India, totaling 567MW.
Siemens Gamesa has agreed to provide the infrastructure needed to install and operate both wind power facilities. The two wind farms will be located in the states of Gujarat and Karnataka.
Under the terms of the order, Siemens Gamesa will supply 270 of its SG 2.1-122 wind turbines, with 2.1MW capacity each, for the two wind farms.
Siemens Gamesa India onshore CEO Ramesh Kymal said: “We are happy to announce this deal with ReNew. It marks a major milestone for Siemens Gamesa in India, with both the size of the project and the technology.
