Siemens Gamesa has notched a second significant deal with ReNew Power to supply its industry leading turbines for a 322 MW wind project in Tondihal, Koppal district, Karnataka. This follows the 301 MW order with ReNew for a wind project in Hombal, Gadag district, Karnataka signed at the beginning of July; and together they provide much-needed momentum to India’s Wind Sector and the country’s energy transition.
In total, the company will deliver 180 of its new SG3.4-145 wind turbines in the state of Karnataka, covering 93 units for the Tondihal project and 87 units for the 301 MW Hombal project. Supply of these turbines is expected to commence during Siemens Gamesa’s financial year 2022, and
marks 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 22 MW wind farm in the state of Maharashtra. Since then, 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 850 kW turbine to its latest SG 3.4-145 turbine. Today, with over 1 GW of commissioned capacity of wind projects, Siemens Gamesa serves over 30 of ReNew’s wind portfolio and stands as one of the most trusted renewable energy partners for the company in India. The SG 3.4-145 is one of the most efficient and cost-effective solutions in the market.
Siemens Gamesa has operated in India since 2009, and the installed base by the company recently surpassed the 7GW mark. The company has blade factories in Nellore (Andhra Pradesh), a nacelle factory in Mamandur (Chennai, Tamil Nadu), and an operations & maintenance center in Red Hills (Chennai, Tamil Nadu).
