Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy introduced its next generation wind turbine, the SG 3.4-145. The new wind turbine is specifically designed and optimized for wind conditions in India and has a clear objective to deliver the lowest possible Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) with high reliability. The turbine is strongly positioned to cater to the needs of the auction market and aims to further drive the growth of wind power in India.
The new wind turbine is an extension of the Siemens Gamesa 3.X platform, of which the company has installed more than 3GW globally and will be manufactured in its facilities in India starting in early 2021. The turbine is designed to adapt to India’s extreme and varying weather conditions supported by an advanced monitoring and cooling system, which ensures efficient thermal conditioning and performance at high-temperature sites. The product has been designed to comply with the global IECRE Standards and meets the Indian CEA 2019 requirements.
Siemens Gamesa has operated in India since 2009. The company has two blade factories in Nellore (Andhra Pradesh) and Halol (Gujarat), a nacelle factory in Mamandur (Chennai, Tamil Nadu), and an operations & maintenance center in Red Hills (Chennai, Tamil Nadu). It also has an R&D center in Bangalore where it employs over 100 engineers.
