The wind farm’s developer is Sembcorp Green Infra, a subsidiary of independent power producer Sembcorp Energy India.
Under the terms of the EPC contract, SGRE will install the 143 turbines and maintain them for ten years. The project is scheduled for commissioning in April 2019.
"This contract marks a landmark in Siemens Gamesa’s strategy in India on account of both the size of the project and the technology selected," said Ramesh Kymal, CEO of SGRE’s onshore division in India.
"It sends a very positive signal regarding the market’s momentum and shores up a confidence in its full recovery," he said.
