Senvion, a global manufacturer of wind turbines, has concluded its first contract in India for the supply of 220 Senvion turbines totaling more than 500 MW. The order was placed under a firm framework agreement with one of the large Indian IPPs.
The turbines will consist of turbines from the recently acquired Kenersys portfolio. Turbines are planned for installation starting in Q4 2017 until 2019, with commissioning of the first site by the end of 2017.
“This is a milestone agreement for Senvion in India,” said Amit Kansal, Managing Director of Senvion India. “We are in a great position to contribute towards the India’s renewable energy targets with our technology. Simultaneously we are working relentlessly to reduce LCoE of wind energy and also building stable relationships with our customers.”
A Senvion service center in India is already set up and will be responsible for turbine maintenance for 10 years. The Indian subsidiary of Senvion started its operations in Mumbai in February 2016, and has already established a strong sales, project, and service team.
In August 2016, Senvion announced the acquisition of the assets of the Indian wind turbine manufacturer Kenersys. The wind turbines K100 (2.6 MW), K110 (2.4 MW), K110+ (2.6 MW), and K120 (2.3 MW) are part of the planned acquisition.
