The office is located in Katunayaka, approximately 30 kilometres north of Colombo on the island's west coast.

Gamesa said the new office will support clients' commercial requirements and will perform project and maintenance work on its 45.3MW of installed capacity.

The manufacturer claims to have a 40% share of the country's wind market, after starting operations there in 2010. It said Sri Lanka's government is targeting 200MW of installed wind capacity by 2017.

According to Windpower Intelligence, Windpower Monthly's data division, Sri Lanka added 24MW to its online capacity in January with the completion of two projects. This increased the country's cumulative capacity by 40% in just one month.
