Kenersys wins new Indian order

INDIA: Small turbine builder Kenersys, owned by Indian company Kalyani, has won a turnkey order from Indian company Ushdev International for four 2MW turbines to be commissioned at a site in the Satara District in Maharashtra by mid-2010.

The deal includes a long term operation and maintenance agreement with Kenersys. Stock-exchange listed company Ushdev is the second largest private sector trading company in India, specialised in power generation and steel trading, says Kenersys. Ushdev has 20MW of wind capacity in operation and another 25MW under construction.

The Ushdev order follows signatures to a 98MW framework contract with major Indian independent electricity supplier, Tata Power, earlier this year. 

The 2MW turbine to be used in India has been adapted to withstand the hot climate, with a closed loop water cooling system to cool the gearbox oil, the generator and the power electronics, Kenersys says. The turbine type also has an electrical system to deal with the frequent grid trippings that occur in India.

This keeps the turbine generator in idling mode when the grid trips, providing the turbine electronics with power so that the turbine can immediately reconnect to the grid. "In combination with the full converter system, the mechanical drive train is thereby protected from extreme loads," Kenersys says.
