June 10 (Renewables Now) - Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) has secured an order from Singapore-based developer Vena Energy to supply turbines for a 133-MW wind farm project in India, the turbine maker announced on Friday.

The wind farm will be located in the state of Karnataka and feature 37 units of the SG 3.6-145 turbines. This turbine model was specifically designed for India’s wind and weather conditions. So far, the 3.X turbine model was selected for over 1 GW of wind projects in India, including the one by Vena Energy, Siemens Gamesa said.

Vena’s turbines will be manufactured in Siemens Gamesa’s factories in India. Installation at the project site is due to begin in 2023.
