Siemens Gamesa Wins Turnkey Contract for 176.8 MW of Wind Capacity from ReNew Power
100.8 MW will be developed in Kutch and 76 MW in Osmanabad
Siemens Gamesa (SGRE), a renewable energy project developer and an Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) provider, has won turnkey contract from renewable energy project developer ReNew Power for the development of two wind projects aggregating 176.8 MW in India.
A 100.8 MW wind project will be developed in Kutch, Gujarat and another 76 MW wind project will be developed in Osmanabad, Maharashtra.
As part of the turnkey contract, SGRE will provide the infrastructure needed to install and operate the facility including supply, erection and commissioning of 48 wind turbines (model SG 2.1-122 ) in Gujarat and 38 wind turbines (model SG 2.0-114 )in Maharashtra.
“We are happy to announce these orders with ReNew Power, and thank them for choosing us as their preferred partner. Repeat orders such as this solidifies our enduring partnership, is an acknowledgement of our quality service, and is a testament to our expertise,” said Ramesh Kymal, Onshore CEO, Siemens Gamesa India.
Commenting on the occasion, Balram Mehta, President – Wind, ReNew Power said, “Siemens Gamesa’s quality EPC and execution capability has helped strengthen our portfolio of wind assets. Our association with them is now over 1GW which includes operational and under construction assets and we are pleased to have them as a valuable partner in our growth story.”
This is another mega turnkey wind order for SGRE in India this year. In April 2018, SGRE bagged an EPC contract to develop a 300 MW wind farm for Sembcorp Green Infra Ltd, a subsidiary of Sembcorp Energy India Ltd.
The turnkey contract also reflects the pace at which ReNew Power is consolidating its position as the leader in the Indian renewable energy sector. In February 2018, Suzlon, a wind turbine manufacturer and renewable energy project developer, has secured a repeat order of 96.6 MW from ReNew Power for the development of a wind project in the state of Karnataka.
