China’s Envision Energy plans to double its wind turbine production capacity in India and build a blade factory there to fulfil 2GW of orders in the country.

Envision said the expanded manufacturing capacity will underpin supply of 596 of its EN 156/3.3MW turbines – claimed to be the largest yet deployed in India – to an unnamed customer for multiple projects by the end of 2023.

The multi-gigawatt order level marks one of the biggest successes so far for a Chinese wind OEM outside its giant domestic market.
