Spanish wind turbine maker Gamesa (BME:GAM) has received an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) order from Indian power producer ReNew Power for a 50-MW wind project in Karnataka state.
Gamesa said on Thursday it will install 25 of its G114-2.0 MW class S turbines at the project site in Bijapur. It will also provide the infrastructure required to build and operate the wind farm. Commissioning is scheduled for March 2017.
The Spanish company said that so far it has signed firm orders with ReNew Power for the supply of nearly 300 MW. Overall, Gamesa has erected over 3,300 MW of wind turbines in India since entering the market in 2009.
Last year, the firm held a 34% share of the Indian market. The country accounted for 30% of Gamesa's total sales volume in the first half of 2016.
