Gamesa has acquired an order from Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Limited (IL&FS) for a 50-MW wind farm project at Amba in Madhya Pradesh.
To be commissioned in March, the order is a turnkey project and the first to be won from IL&FS.
As part of this contract, Gamesa will supply, erect and commission 25 units of its G114 – 2.0MW wind turbines. The G114-2.0 MW is designed to yield more power at lower wind speeds making it particularly suited to India’s wind conditions.
With a rotor spanning 114 metres, the new turbine’s swept area is 38 percent greater than that of its predecessor. This order forms part of the 278 MW consolidated orders announced for India.
Commenting on the development, Ramesh Kymal, chairman and managing director, Gamesa India, said, “We are glad to announce our first project with IL&FS, one of India’s leading infrastructure development and finance companies. Not only does this order boost our confidence significantly but also encourages us to continuously offer value for our growing elite client base through innovative tailor made solutions. This order takes us a step closer in our collective goal of addressing the growing energy needs in India and is one that we greatly look forward to completing.”
