Gamesa has won a contract to construct a 100-megawatt wind farm in India for Tata Power, its first deal with the Indian major.
Under the agreement, Gamesa will install 50 sets of its 2-MW turbines at the Nimbagallu wind farm, located in the state of Andhra Pradesh. With a tower height of 104 metres, this new turbine variant is custom-designed for the low wind speed sites typical of India.
Given the fact that it is a turnkey contract, Gamesa will handle all of the infrastructure needed to install and operate the project and will also provide the long-term operations and maintenance services. The wind farm’s commissioning is scheduled for May 2017.
Even though this is Gamesa’s first deal with Tata Power, the Spanish company already has a strong presence in India, having installed 2,270MW of turbines and developing 1.4GW of projects on its own.
