Gamesa continues to reinforce its position in India, where the company has ranked as the leading OEM for the last three years. Now, it will add seven new orders to the list with a supply order of 278 MW for several customers.
Gamesa will supply, install, and commission the turbines at all seven developments. Three of them are EPC contracts, so it will also perform the corresponding civil engineering work at these facilities.
The projects are slated for commissioning between March and October 2017.
In all, Gamesa will supply:
- 198 MW and 99 of its G114-2.0 turbines
- 80 MW and 40 of its G97-2.0 MW model.
Present in India since 2009, Gamesa has been the top OEM for wind over the past three years. According to MAKE Consultancy, it has increased its gap with respect to the next contender in 2015 when it lifted its market share from 25% to 34%.
Gamesa recently inaugurated a new factory in the Nellore region, in the state of Andhra Pradesh, adding to its blade plant in Halol (Gujarat), nacelle factory in Mamandur (Chennai, Tamil Nadu), and repair centre in Red Hills (Chennai, Tamil Nadu).
