As part of its continued plan to explore opportunities that complement the wind industry, Gamesa has secured an order for 12 MW of solar photovoltaic plants in India.
Under this contract, Gamesa will be responsible for the engineering and design, supply of inverters, erection, and commissioning of the projects, located in the state of Tamil Nadu.
Gamesa says India’s solar potential has been sized at 750 GW. The government’s goal is to lift installed capacity to 100 GW by 2022, compared to the currently installed 3.8 GW.
Gamesa’s focus on the photovoltaic sector in India fits with the company’s strategic goal in its 2015-2017 business plan to increase its involvement in wind-complementary businesses.
