Spanish turbine manufacturer Gamesa Eólica is setting up a joint venture company with the Pioneer Asia group in Tamil Nadu for the supply components for seven 850 kW turbines to be installed for a spinning mill in Muppandal, Tamil Nadu. Pioneer Asia Wind Turbines will assemble the turbines at its plant in Pondicherry. At present, the plant only turns out 250 MW turbines, but Pioneer has recently invested $1.3 million to expand its capabilities to accommodate construction of larger machines, says the company's S. Annamalai.
