Wind turbine manufacturer NEPC India reported the delivery of its 1809th wind turbine at a special ceremony presided over by Vilas Muttemwar, India's new minister for Non-Conventional Energy Sources. At the ceremony the company handed over the 225 kW turbine to project developer Alfin Wind Energy, a subsidiary of Ashok Leyland Finance of the Hinduja Group. The turbine brings Ashok Leyland's Ennore Factory wind farm at Palavoor, Kanyakumari, at the southernmost tip of India, to 34 MW. Alfin has placed an additional order for a further 200, 225 kW turbines from NEPC to bring the wind farm up to 79 MW within the next two years. "The confidence of clients in smaller machines is apparent with us having got the tenth repeat order from Ashok Leyland for 225 kW turbines," noted NEPC's Raj Kumar. The company was at one time affiliated to Denmark's NEG Micon, which this year has merged with Vestas.
