Siemens Gamesa Received Wind Turbine Order From Sembcorp Green
Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has received an order under the terms of the EPC contract for Sembcorp Green Infra Limited, a 100% subsidiary of Sembcorp Energy India Limited. Siemens Gamesa will build the 300 MW wind farm, at which it will install 143 of its SG 2.1-122 turbines, making it the largest single order secured by Siemens Gamesa in India.
Siemens Gamesa will provide all of the infrastructure needed to equip and operate the facility, located in Gujarat state, in western India. It will also maintain the facility, which is due to be commissioned in April 2019, for 10 years.
First order for the SG 2.1-122 turbine
The other milestone implied by this contract is the fact that it is the first order placed for the SG 2.1-122, a turbine specifically fine-tuned for low-speed sites such as those prevalent in India. The wind farm will be connected to India's Interstate Transmission System and supply power to multiple states, helping them to meet their renewable energy requirement.
Present in India since 2009, the accumulated base installed by Siemens Gamesa recently topped the 5 GW mark. The company has two blade factories in Nellore (Andhra Pradesh) and Halol (Gujarat), a nacelle factory in Mamandur (Chennai, Tamil Nadu) and a service centre in Red Hills (Chennai, Tamil Nadu).
