Vestas has won a 101MW engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) project in India from Continuum Wind Energy subsidiary Trinethra Wind & Hydro Power.

Located in Rajkot in the Indian state of Gujarat, the project will sell electricity generated to commercial and industrial consumers through third-party power purchase agreements (PPA).

Under the contract, Vestas will be responsible for the delivery, installation and commissioning of 46 V120-2.2MW turbines, as well as the project’s civil and electrical work.

Continuum Wind Energy CEO Arvind Bansal said: “Continuum has enjoyed its relationship with Vestas and looks forward to deploying their latest offering of V120-2.2MW turbines in India for the first phase of 101MW of the 350MW project.

“We will be working closely with our partners to help India meet its renewable energy needs.”

“Vestas’ offering will help us provide high-quality and reliable service to our prestigious commercial and industrial customers in Gujarat. We are encouraged by the increasing interest of commercial and industrial customers in purchasing renewable energy.”

Vestas intends to deliver the turbines in the first quarter of this year and commissioning is expected to take place by the second quarter of 2019.

Once complete, the Danish firm will commence a 15-year full scope Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, as well as a Vestas Online Business SCADA solution.

Vestas Asia Pacific president Clive Turton said: “We are very excited to start the year with an EPC order in India; this showcases the confidence and trust that our customers have in our capabilities across the full range of projects.

“We will be working closely with our partners to help India meet its renewable energy needs while enhancing the Indian wind energy sector by providing long-term job opportunities as well as low-cost energy to the local community.”
