Siemens Gamesa has secured its second deal this month with ReNew Power to supply turbines for a 322MW wind project in Tondehal, India.
This agreement follows a 301MW order with ReNew for a wind project in Hombal, signed at the beginning of July.
In total, Siemens Gamesa will deliver 180 of its new SG 3.4-145 wind turbines in the state of Karnataka, covering 93 units for the Tondehal project in the Koppal district, and 87 units for the 301MW Hombal project in the Gadag district.
Supply of these turbines is expected to commence during Siemens Gamesa’s financial year 2022.
Siemens Gamesa launched the SG 3.4-145 turbine in 2020 and the deals with ReNew mark the first order for this next-generation wind turbine for the Indian market.
Siemens Gamesa will supply the wind turbines for ReNew Power’s projects from its manufacturing plants in India.
Siemens Gamesa and ReNew power first partnered in 2012 for a 22MW wind farm in the state of Maharashtra.
Since that time Siemens Gamesa has developed wind farms for ReNew power across five wind-rich states in the country which are powered by turbines ranging from the company’s legacy 850kW turbine to its latest SG 3.4-145 turbine.
Siemens Gamesa India CEO Navin Dewaji said: “We are happy to announce these two large deals for the SG 3.4-145 turbine with ReNew Power, one of our long-standing customers in India and we thank Renew for their trust in our capabilities.
“Deals of this scale provide much needed momentum for the Indian wind industry, and I am confident that this product will set the pace for the next-generation growth for wind in the country.
“With a 7GW installed base, India will remain an important market for Siemens Gamesa and we are fully committed to contributing to the country’s renewable energy targets.”
