Gamesa Wins 220 MW of Orders for 5 Indian Wind FarmsAlex Morales
Gamesa Corp. Tecnologica SA, Spain’s biggest wind turbine maker, won orders for 220 megawatts of machines across five wind farms in three Indian states, the company said.
The orders came from three independent power companies and cover the sale of 110 G97 2-megawatt wind turbines, Gamesa said today in an e-mailed statement, without disclosing the identities of its customers. The deals also include long-term service contracts, it said.
The wind farms are in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Karnataka, Gamesa said. The turbines are slated for delivery in March 2015.
Gamesa took about 19 percent of the Indian market in the year through March, second only to local turbine maker Suzlon Energy Ltd., according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Gamesa said it had the biggest share of the market during the 2013 calendar year, and orders from the South Asian country accounted for about a third of its sales in the first quarter of this year.
