Spanish wind turbine maker Gamesa (BME:GAM) today said it has won orders to supply a total 304 MW of turbines at five wind farms in India, strengthening its foothold on the market.
The contracts, secured in the third quarter of 2016 and coming from several customers, will see the company supply, install and commission 80 units of its G114-2.0 class S machines and 72 pieces of its G97-2.0 MW class S turbines. Both models have been specifically configured for the low wind speed sites typical of India.
The projects are due to be commissioned during the first quarter of next year. For four of the wind farms, Gamesa will also be in charge of construction. It will be responsible for the operations and maintenance of all five facilities.
Gamesa, whose shareholders recently cleared the company's planned combination with the wind power business of Germany’s Siemens (ETR:SIE), says it is the leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in India with a market share of 34% in 2015, up from 25% in 2014, based on MAKE Consultancy data.
