Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has announced winning two orders from Alfanar to supply equipment to aid generation of 453 MW at two wind farms in Bhuj.
According to a company statement, the Spanish firm has secured its first order in India from Alfanar for supply of 206 units of the SG 2.2-122 wind turbines for the two wind farms.
The SG 2.2-122 is specifically optimised for low wind, low turbulence sites typical of the Indian market. Both projects will be located in Bhuj, Gujarat, where the company will supply equipment to aid generation of 202 MW for one project and 251 MW for the other. The wind farms are expected to be commissioned by 2020.
Jamal Wadi, CEO, Alfanar Global Development, said, “As one of the global players for developing renewable projects, we are happy to partner with Siemens Gamesa yet again, this time for part of our 600 MW portfolio awarded under the SECI bids which we are developing in Bhuj, India.”
