SGRE won the 50MW deal from local energy company Zephyr Power to install 25 G114-2MW turbines at the project near Gharo, in the Thatta district of southern Pakistan. 

The turbines will be equipped with "environmental kits" to help maintain permformance at "high dust and high temperature sites", SGRE said. 

Turbine installation is due to begin by the end of this year, with project completion expected in August 2018. 

Earlier this week, SGRE announced it had also won its first order to develop a 28.8MW hybrid site in India.

Elsewhere in Asia Pacific, the company installed a 210-metre high turbine in Thailand last month.

SGRE reported a 7% fall in revenue in its third quarter results at the end of July, caused by a 25% drop in sales. SGRE said the dip in sales was due to a "market shutdown" in India.
