Siemens Gamesa Bags ReNew Deal for India’s Wind Industry
Siemens Gamesa has notched a second significant deal this month with ReNew Power to supply its industry leading turbines to a 322 MW wind project in Tondehal. This follows the 301 MW order with ReNew for a wind project in Hombal signed at the beginning of July, and together they provide much-needed momentum to the country’s energy transition. In total, the company will deliver 180 of its new SG3.4-145 wind turbines in the state of Karnataka, covering 93 units for the Tondehal project in the Koppal district, and 87 units for the 301 MW Hombal project in the Gadag district (87 units, 301 MW). Supply of these turbines is expected to commence during Siemens Gamesa’s financial year 2022.
Siemens Gamesa launched the SG 3.4-145 turbine in 2020 despite an ongoing pandemic, and this marks the first order for this next-generation wind turbine for the Indian market. Siemens Gamesa will supply the wind turbines for ReNew Power’s projects from its manufacturing plants in India.The 301 MW project was announced to the Spanish stock exchange on July 5, with both orders registered in the fourth quarter of the fiscal year.
