January 13 (Renewables Now) - GE Renewable Energy announced today it has received a turbine order from a subsidiary of Continuum Green Energy India Pvt Ltd to equip a 99.9-MW wind project in the Indian state of Gujarat.

The renewable energy arm of General Electric (NYSE:GE) will supply 37 units of its 2.7-132 onshore wind turbines for the Rajkot project. The contract was signed with Continuum Trinethra Renewables Pvt Ltd.

On its website, Continuum Green Energy lists a hybrid project in Gujarat called Rajkot 3 that consists of a 99.9-MW wind farm and a 140-MWp solar plant.

This is the second agreement between GE and Continuum Green Energy following last year's supply deal for the 148.5-MW Morjar, Bhuj wind farm, also in Gujarat. In 2021 alone, GE secured over 1.2 GW in orders in India, the press release states.

Majority-owned by a global infrastructure fund managed by Morgan Stanley Infrastructure Partners (MSIP), the India-focused renewable energy platform has a portfolio of over 1 GW of operating and under-construction capacity.
