Gamesa has secured five new turbine orders for the supply of a total of 304 MW to several customers in India.

The company says it will supply, install and commission the turbines, as well as handle the operations and maintenance services, at all of the facilities. Moreover, at four of the complexes, the company will manage construction.

Specifically, Gamesa will supply 80 of its G114-2.0 class S turbines (160 MW) and 72 of its G97-2.0 MW class S (144 MW) turbines, both of which were specifically configured for the Indian market, with the aim of maximizing turbine performance at low-wind-speed sites.

The company says these projects are slated for commissioning during the first quarter of 2017.

Gamesa has been present in India, where it has installed over 3,000 MW, since 2009. According to MAKE Consultancy, Gamesa is the leading original equipment manufacturer in India, with a market share of 34% in 2015 (which is up from 25% in 2014), having dominated this market for three years in a row.
