Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, has been awarded a 101,2 MW project from ReNew Power – one of India’s largest clean energy companies, to deliver the Bhuwad Wind Project (part of Round 2 bidding from Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited – a company of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India) in Gujarat, in a sign of growing emphasis on renewable energy in India.
The project will comprise 44 Senvion 2.3M120 turbines at 120m height which will produce enough clean energy to supply the power needs of almost 100,000 Indian homes. Key factors for awarding the contract to Senvion included technical strength and a strong relationship with ReNew Power. The project is slated to be commissioned within the next 12 months. The project scope includes a 10-year comprehensive operations and maintenance (O&M) contract.
Senvion has introduced its excellent technology in India and has built an organization to deliver full EPC projects. Senvion’s mission is to become a key player in the Indian renewable space and the ReNew contract is a major step towards that mission. The project is expected to be operational by late 2018.
