Greenko starts 50MW of wind in India

Rapidly growing Indian developer Greenko this week said it connected the second 50MW phase of its 180MW Basvanbagewadi wind farm to the grid in southwestern India.

Gamesa supplied its 2MW turbines for the €45m ($61.2m) second phase of the project in the state of Karnataka.

Greenko chief executive Anil Chalamalasetty said the company expects to grow rapidly via its strategy of constructing big projects with turbines designed to capture lower wind speeds.

The Hyderabad-based company has already completed the first 51.2MW phase of Basvanbagewadi, along with two other 15MW portions, bringing the site’s total generating capacity to 131.2MW.

The company currently has 298MW of wind capacity under its belt, and has already secured grid access for Basvanbagewadi's total planned capacity of 180MW. It did not reveal when it expects to complete the remaining 48.8MW.

It now claims a total electricity-generating capacity of 611MW, which is roughly double the level it reported in April 2013.

In April, London-listed Greenko revealed it commissioned 182.4MW of wind in the second half of the fiscal year to 31 March.
