ReNew Power chooses Siemens Gamesa to develop two 176.8 MW projects in India

Renewable technology developer Siemens Gamesa was awarded two projects in India

Renewable technology developer Siemens Gamesa announced it was awarded two projects in India. The company will build one 100.8 MW wind farm in the Kutch District and another 76 MW facility in Osmanabad.

Siemens Gamesa, which has a large presence in India, is one of the country’s renewable leaders. Both projects were assigned by ReNew Power.

The Spanish firm will be in charge of providing the infrastructure necessary to install and operate the facility. This cooperation includes the supply, installation, and assembly of 48 SG 2.1-122 wind turbines in Gujarat and 38 SG 2.0-114 turbines in Maharashtra.

“We are happy to announce these orders with ReNew Power, and thank them for choosing us as their preferred partner. Repeat orders such as this solidifies our enduring partnership, is an acknowledgement of our quality service, and is a testament to our expertise,” said Ramesh Kymal, Onshore CEO, Siemens Gamesa India.

On the other hand, ReNew Power also celebrated the development of these two projects.

“Siemens Gamesa’s quality EPC and execution capability has helped strengthen our portfolio of wind assets. Our association with them is now over 1GW, which includes operational and under construction assets and we are pleased to have them as a valuable partner in our growth story,” the president of ReNew Power Balram Mehta stated.

Wind turbines for two projects in India

Siemens Gamesa is set to provide SG 2.1-122 and SG 2.0-114 turbines for these projects. Overall, 86 of these machines will be installed in two districts to generate over 176 MW.

Model SG 2.1-122

This turbine was designed for sites with low-wind low-turbulence conditions; to position the company in low-wind regions, such as China and India.

This model works in sites with low wind speeds. The Rotor diameter is 122 meters and it has a nominal generation capacity of 2.1 MW.

Model SG 2.0-114

This model is similar to the SG 2.1-122 but a bit smaller, at 114 meters tall. It is designed for low power density.

These models are adapted for conditions presented in regions like China, Brazil, and India.

According to the company, these wind turbines are versatile and can operate at maximum capacity in almost any context.

India’s renewable potential

This South Asian country is one of the world’s top energy consumers. Over the past years, it has persevered in its attempts to seek alternatives for less polluting and renewable energies.

Nuclear, wind, and solar power are the backbone of an ambitious project that seeks a sustainable future for this country. Siemens Gamesa is one of its main allies in this area and it has already installed 5,500 MW in several projects.

Moreover, India is the leader of the International Solar Alliance, an association with over 121 member nations that intends to promote solar power and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
