The Indian manufacturer will install 85 of its 2MW turbines, which are based on a design licensed from US-based AMSC, on a wind farm being developed by Continuum Wind Energy.

Inox has produced its 2MW machine since 2009, but the turbines to be installed on this project will be fitted with 100-metre rotors rather than the previous 93-metre rotor.

Inox will install and commiss the turbine, as well as provide operations and maintenance services for an unspecified period of time.

Earlier in June Inox signed a follow-on contract with AMSC for the supply of turbine control systems for the 2MW turbine. The $40 million deal was the sixth that has been struck between the two companies and will see AMSC start shipping the systems to Inox imminently.

Continuum is a Singapore-based project developer focussed on the Indian market. It is majority owned by Morgan Stanley Infrastructure Partners.
