Gamesa books 220MW in India

Spanish wind group Gamesa said it has signed new orders to supply 220MW of its turbines to India.

The deals are with “three of the main independent power producers”, said Gamesa, without giving further details.

Gamesa will supply 110 of its G97-2.0 MW turbines to five wind farms in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Karnataka.

The machines will be produced at its local factories. 50MW of the total falls under previously-announced framework deals, said the manufacturer.

The agreements also include long-term O&M provision at the wind farms.

Gamesa has installed more than 1.1GW in India and the nation accounted for one-third of its sales in the first quarter of 2014.
