Gamesa wins 48MW Indian deal

INDIA: Gamesa is to supply 47.6MW to a wind farm in the district of Ahmednagar, in Maharashtra, western India.

The Spanish company will build the wind farm, consisting of 56 Gamesa 850kW turbines, and manage a ten-year operation and maintenance (O&M) services contract.

Gamesa was awarded the contract by power company SJVN  – a joint venture between the Indian government and the government of the northern state of Himachal Pradesh.

SJVN is engaged in hydropower development in India as well as in neighbouring countries of Nepal and Bhutan, but is diversifying into wind power.

Ramesh Kymal, chairman and managing director of Gamesa India said: "Gamesa-SJVN new contract comes at a time when several states in India are reeling under acute power shortage and it shows how wind energy could play a pivotal role in being an ideal alternative source of energy."
