Gamesa will supply its first G97-2.0 MW Class S turbines in India, a new model specifically designed for low-wind-speed sites in the Indian market.
The company has signed a new agreement with Orange, one of India's leading independent power producers, for the supply of 50 MW of its G97-2.0 MW Class S turbines at Khanapur site, located in Maharashtra, India.
This is the second agreement secured by Gamesa from Orange, after having announced in October the delivery of another 50 MW at this same Khanapur facility.
With a tower height of 104 meters, Gamesa has designed this variant – already certified by TUV NORD – specifically for the Indian market, with a view to maximizing turbine performance at low-wind-speed sites.
The company will also provide the facility's operation and maintenance services under a long-term arrangement. The first phase of 50 MW of the project commissioning is scheduled to be completed in March. The second 50 MW phase expected will be commissioned in June, notes Gamesa.
