Senvion has concluded its first contract in India for the supply of 220 wind turbines totaling more than 500 MW.
The company’s Indian subsidiary started its operations in Mumbai in February. In August, Senvion announced the acquisition of the assets of Indian turbine manufacturer Kenersys.
Senvion inked this new firm framework agreement with a large independent power producer. The turbines will come from the recently acquired Kenersys portfolio.
The company plans to install the turbines starting in the fourth quarter of 2017 until 2019. Commissioning of the first site is expected by the end of 2017.
Once the whole framework agreement is delivered, the projects will produce enough energy to power more than 700,000 Indian households, says Senvion, whose Indian service center will be responsible for turbine maintenance for 10 years.
“Earlier this year, we announced our decision to enter the Indian market,” comments Jürgen Geissinger, CEO of Senvion. “Now, we are proud to present this firm framework agreement that is the start of a strong future cooperation. This contract emphasizes our planned growth story in India.”
