Following the introduction of a new turbine-blade factory in Gujarat, Vestas has received a 100-MW turnkey order, which includes delivery, installation, and commissioning of 50 turbines.
Leveraging Vestas’ extensive experience from more than 100 turnkey projects across the globe, the order includes delivery, installation, and commissioning of 50 V110-2.0-MW turbines, as well as the project’s civil and electrical works.
The order follows the inauguration of Vestas’ blade factory in Gujarat and the 54-MW Periyapatti order earlier this year, adding to Vestas’ continued progress in India.
The order also includes a 10-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM4000) service contract and VestasOnline Business, our unique SCADA system for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance.
“This order underlines the broad range of capabilities and offerings that Vestas has to offer in the Indian market now and in the future. Our extensive experience from around 4 GW of turnkey projects across the globe has been key in securing this order, which is another significant step forward in a key market,” said Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific.
Turbine delivery is expected to start in late 2017, with commissioning by first half 2018.
