Spain-based Gamesa has signed a supply contract with independent power producer Hero Future Energies (HFE) for a 100 MW wind farm in India.
Under the terms of the deal with HFE, Gamesa will supply and install 50 of its G97-2.0 MW Class S turbines at the Dhar wind farm, located in the state of Madhya Pradesh. With a tower height of 104 meters, this new turbine variant is designed for the low-wind-speed sites typical of India. The wind farm's commissioning is scheduled for March 2016.
Gamesa says the new order reinforces the company's presence in India, where the firm has installed close to 2.1 GW and currently services over 1.7 GW under O&M agreements. In addition, in its capacity as wind farm developer, Gamesa has developed over 1.3 GW in the country.
