Indian wind turbine manufacturer Inox Wind Ltd (BOM:539083) said Thursday it has successfully commissioned several wind parks with a combined capacity of 116 MW in the northwestern state of Gujarat.

Along wind the wind parks, the company also completed a 220-kV substation and the transmission line part of its 400-MW power evacuation infrastructure facility. They are located in the village of Rojmal, according to the press release.
Inox Wind will now provide operation and maintenance (O&M) services for the wind parks in the long term. The firm has a number of turnkey projects under development countrywide, it noted.
