Siemens Gamesa has secured an order in India from Ayana Renewable Power Six Private Limited to supply a 302-MW project, providing another boost to the country’s wind-energy drive. A total of 84 units of the SG 3.6-145 wind turbines will be installed for the project in the Gadag district, Karnataka State.
“We are happy to announce this new deal with Ayana Renewable Power, one of the fastest growing renewable Independent Power Producers (IPPs) in India,” said Navin Dewaji, India CEO of Siemens Gamesa.
“This order significantly helps us as we gear up for the next growth phase for Siemens Gamesa in India. With the SG 3.6-145, a turbine made for India, we are confident we are delivering better value for our customers.”
Ayana first partnered with Siemens Gamesa in 2019 for a 300-MW solar farm in the state of Rajasthan and has 3 GW of renewable energy capacity under various stages of development and operation across several Indian states. Ayana won this project in the SECI ISTS Tranche X tender and will develop the required infrastructure for this windfarm, planned in the state of Karnataka.
Siemens Gamesa launched this new turbine in 2020 despite an ongoing pandemic and announced its first orders in July 2021 for 623 MW. Turbines for this project will be supplied from the manufacturing plants in India and the project is expected to be commissioned in 2023. The SG 3.6-145 wind turbine is an extension of the SG 3.4-145.
Siemens Gamesa has operated in India since 2009, and the base installed by the company recently surpassed the 7-GW mark. The company has one blade factory in Nellore (Andhra Pradesh), a nacelle factory in Mamandur (Chennai, Tamil Nadu), and an operations and maintenance center in the Red Hills (Chennai, Tamil Nadu).
