Gamesa secures first orders for the G114-2.0 MW in India

Gamesa has secured the first orders to supply the G114-2.0 MW turbine in India, a model for which the worldwide order book already stands at over 2,000 MW.

<p>Specifically, these two contracts contemplate the installation of 92 G114-2.0 MW class S wind turbines (184 MW) in India.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> With the signature of these contracts, the company's global order intake in 2015 topped 3,880 MW.</p> <p>The first order encompasses the installation of 50 of its G114-2.0 MW class S at a project located in the state of Andhra Pradesh, which will be commissioned during 2016. The second order includes the supply of 42 of its G114-2.0 MW class S turbines to a wind farm located in the state of Karnataka.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="">Gamesa</a> claims that, with a tower height of 106 metres, this new G114-2.0 MW class S turbine variant is custom-designed for the low wind speed sites of India.</p> <p>In both cases, the turbines will be manufactured at the nacelle factory in Mamandur, close to Chennai, which Gamesa expanded one year ago in order to install a new production line and introduce the G114-2.0 MW into the Indian market.&nbsp;</p> <p>&quot;Technology is a key source of differentiation in terms of maintaining Gamesa's competitive edge in India, a priority market in which it is the leading OEM. India accounted for 28% of the company's sales volume (in MW) in the third quarter of 2015&rdquo;, explained Ramesh Kymal, Gamesa's CEO in India.&nbsp;</p> <p>The G114-2.0 MW is designed to yield more power at lower cost at low and medium wind speed sites, making it particularly suited to India's wind conditions, says the company. With a rotor spanning 114 metres, the new turbine&rsquo;s sweep area is 38% greater than that of the G97-2.0 MW and it produces up to 20% more energy a year. This turbine is part of Gamesa&rsquo;s 2.0-2.5 MW platform whose credentials include 21 GW of installations in 35 countries.</p>
