Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE), a leading renewable energy player in India, has bolstered its position in this market having received a new order from Orange Renewable for the EPC construction of a 200 MW wind farm located in Poovani, Tamilnadu. This project is being promoted by Singapore's AT Holdings. The agreement encompasses the entire infrastructure needed to operate the project together with the supply of 100 of its G114-2.0 wind turbines with a hub height of 106 meters, specifically designed for the low-wind sites typical of India. The project is expected to be commissioned by February 2019.
The clean and affordable energy generated by this project will offset approximately 651,000 tCO2e and electrify around 155,000 households annually. The project will be connected to India's interstate transmission grid, which will enable the flow of energy from a renewable-resource-rich state to other states, helping them to comply with their renewable energy purchase obligations and secure a long-term power supply at a fixed price.
SGRE said that they are happy to announce this new deal with Orange Renewable, one of the fastest growing renewable IPPs in India. This order marks the next phase of growth at Siemens Gamesa in India as the company expects to deliver better value for their client base through innovative tailor-made solutions. In response Orange Renewable stated that this partnership will take their Siemens Gamesa fleet close to 500 MW and their overall renewable portfolio close to 1 GW. Together they are committed to delivering optimal energy solutions to the country.
