Spain’s Gamesa (BME:GAM), whose stockholders just cleared a merger with Siemens Wind Power, has received an order from Atria Power to build two solar power plants in southern India with a combined capacity of 130 MW.
In particular, Gamesa has won a contract to design and engineer one solar park of 90 MW in Karnataka and one of 40 MW in Andhra Pradesh. The company is also tasked with procuring 96 units of the E1.37 MW photovoltaic (PV) inverters, to be made by Gamesa Electric.
Moreover, Gamesa will offer operations and maintenance (O&M) services for the plants once they are commissioned in March 2017.
Gamesa noted that this is the largest solar order received by the company since it set foot into this sector in India last year. It did not disclose the value of the deal.
