India-based turbine manufacturer Senvion India has secured a wind turbine supply contract from JSW Energy for a 591MW project.
The project is part of JSW Energy’s 2.5GW renewable pipeline, which is currently in its development phase.
Senvion India managing director and CEO Amit Kansal said: “The success of such a project depends on pre-engineering and optimisation, which helps not only in winning but in execution later.
“The two teams are now working relentlessly to meet the commissioning timelines and to build a world-class project.
“Senvion is fully committed to delivering world-class technology and significantly contribute towards the vision of the Indian government to achieve 450GW of installed renewable power in the country by 2030.”
Under the contract, Senvion will supply its 2.7MW wind turbines, which can generate enough clean energy to power more than 450,000 homes in India.
Senvion plans to begin delivering the turbines in the first half of next year.
The company has also agreed to provide maintenance services for the turbines once they are installed under a ten-year Fleet-Pro operations and maintenance (O&M) contract.
Senvion India chairman Jamal Wadi said: “The trust that JSW Energy has placed in Senvion India with the order is a testimony to the superior technology and performance of Senvion India’s wind turbines.
“Alfanar is committed to strengthening Senvion India to deliver its projects on time with high-quality standards and continuously evolve as the top technology original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of wind technology.”
JSW Energy managing director and CEO Prashant Jain said: “Senvion presented a high-quality proposal backed by quality turbines, strong engineering capability and an attitude to jointly work towards solutions for successful execution of the project.
“We look forward to on-time completion of the under-construction wind projects.”
In July, Saudi Arabian energy company Alfanar acquired Senvion India from Senvion, marking Alfanar’s entry into India’s energy market.
