The Indian turbine supplier will also install and commission its 2MW units, which have a hub height of 120 metres and 113-metre rotor diameter, for Adani Green Energy, which is part of Indian infrastructure conglomerate the Adani Group.

The project is due to be completed on a turnkey basis over the next six to nine months, Inox said. The manufacturer said it would also provide long-term operations and maintenance (O&M) services upon completion of the project.

Adani won the licences in the first round of bidding in the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy’s (MNRE’s) auction for wind projects in February.

The company has also signed a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with PTC India, a public-private partnership set up by the Indian government, for a fixed tariff of INR3.46/KWh ($0.054/KWh) for the project.

Adani Green Energy CEO Jayan Parimal, said: "Due to the ongoing shift in the wind power sector, we are at a juncture where clean energy resources will define our future.

"Adani Green Energy has a well-articulated growth plan to increase its renewable power capacity to 10GW by 2021."

Last year, Inox won Adani's first ever wind turbine orders for a 50MW project in the Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh, south-east India and the 20MW Lahori project in Madhya Pradesh, central India.

A government official indicated the MNRE is preparing to auction about 6GW of wind capacity by the end of this financial year, building on the two 1GW auctions in February and July.
