Under a technical transfer agreement, Kirloskar, one of India's largest firms of medium and heavy electrical engineers, will assemble low wind speed versions of the WEG 400 turbine under licence. In the meantime, WEG is supplying an initial 50 wind turbines to India -- some for Kirloskar to install at a wind farm it is to develop near Bangalore and some which it will sell on to customers.
