Envision plans India entry

INDIA: Chinese turbine maker Envision has approached the National Institute of Wind Energy (NIWE) to get approval to market its 2MW machines in India.

Envision is now examining opportunities in India's fast-growing wind sector

Current regulations demand that all new wind turbine models are approved by NIWE before installation.

Envision is among China’s top five and the world’s top ten turbine manufacturers, with more than 7.5GW of installed capacity spread across the globe.

Envision is the fourth Chinese turbine maker to make a bid for entering the growing Indian wind market.  Sinovel and Ming Yang have previously made forays by teaming up with Indian partners.

About a year ago, the Sany group committed to an investment of $3 billion in 2GW of wind projects, and outlined plans for local manufacturing of its 2MW turbine platform.
