German wind turbine manufacturer Senvion has secured a contract from Indian clean energy firm ReNew Power to deliver the 101.2MW Bhuwad Wind project in India.
Located in Gujarat, the Bhuwad project is said to be Senvion’s first of its kind in India.
Senvion CEO Jürgen Geissinger said: “ReNew’s contract award demonstrates both Senvion’s technological leadership, as well as our rigorous geographic expansion.
“Entering the high volume Indian market proves that we offer the right solutions for a highly competitive market.
“This award is a milestone for Senvion and shows that technological pioneering and strong partnerships are key to succeeding in highly attractive markets.”
With 44 Senvion 2.3M120 turbines placed at a height of 120m, the project will be able to generate enough clean energy to supply the power needs of almost 100,000 Indian homes.
Under the deal, Senvion will also offer comprehensive operations and maintenance (O&M) services for a period of ten years.
The project is expected to be commissioned within the next 12 months.
ReNew Power chairman and CEO Sumant Sinha said: “As one of the leading players in the renewable energy space in India, ReNew Power is committed to ensuring that all our projects are executed using modern technologies.
“We are delighted to partner with Senvion, who are known for their technological edge and globally proven service capabilities.”
