Gamesa has announced it will build a 40 MW turnkey wind farm in India for independent power producer ReNew Power.
Under the terms of the contract, Gamesa will install 20 of its G97-2.0 MW Class S turbines at the Lingsagur wind farm, located in the province of Karnataka. With a tower height of 104 meters, this new turbine variant is custom-designed for the low-wind-speed sites typical of India, says Gamesa.
Given the fact that it is a turnkey contract, Gamesa will handle all of the infrastructure needed to install and operate the project and will also provide the long-term operations and maintenance services. The wind farm's commissioning is scheduled for March 2016.
Gamesa says this new contract strengthens the company's relationship with ReNew Power, with which it has already signed firm orders for the supply of 102.65 MW in the provinces of Karnataka and Maharaja.
