March 3 (SeeNews) - Spanish wind power-focused firm Gamesa (BME:GAM) said today it has received a new solar order in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, this time involving photovoltaic (PV) projects with a combined capacity of 12 MW.
As part of the new contract, Gamesa will provide engineering and design services, supply inverters, implement the actual installation and commission the solar PV parks. The firm expects the facilities to be completed this quarter.
The latest order expands the company’s Indian solar power portfolio to 60 MW. In late January, Gamesa unveiled a deal to build a 15-MW solar farm in Tamil Nadu. So far, the company has commissioned a total of 12 MW of solar capacity in the Asian nation.
Gamesa’s expansion into the solar sector aligns with its goal to explore opportunities in businesses that complement the wind industry, it explained.
