Senvion India Pvt Ltd, a spin-off of German wind turbine maker Senvion GmbH that is now owned by Saudi Arabia’s Alfanar Group, has secured a contract to deliver 591 MW of turbines for a project in India.
The firm deal was placed by Indian power producer JSW Energy Ltd (BOM:533148), a unit of domestic conglomerate JSW Group, the turbine manufacturer said on Monday. Under its terms, Senvion India will equip the power plant with its 2.7-MW machines, deliveries of which are due to start from the first half of next year.
Once up and running, the wind farm will be capable of generating enough electricity for more than 450,000 local homes. Senvion will oversee its management under a 10-year operations and maintenance (O&M) agreement.
The project, whose name and location was not specified, is part of JSW Energy’s roughly 2.5-GW fleet of renewable energy plants under construction.
Senvion India has been active since 2016 and up to 85% of the turbines it supplies are produced domestically. The company was acquired by Riyadh-based Alfanar Group in July.
