The wind turbines are part of a 989 MW wind-solar hybrid project by AM Green Energy Private Limited (AMGEPL), a joint venture between ArcelorMittal S.A. and ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India Limited (AM/NS India). The clean power generated will be used by one of the company's steel plants in Hazira in the state of Gujarat, providing a much-needed boost to the decarbonization efforts of the industry in the country.

Through this agreement, the steel plant will be able to meet 20% of its electricity needs from renewable energy sources while helping to reduce its carbon emissions by 1.5 million tons per year.

“This partnership with the world’s second largest steel producer opens up a huge opportunity for the wind industry in India, especially for the power-intensive steel industry which is fast-tracking its efforts to meet carbon emissions goals. We are confident in delivering this landmark project that will help give fresh renewable momentum to the state of Andhra Pradesh,” said Navin Dewaji, CEO of the Asia Pacific region for Siemens Gamesa’s onshore business. 

“Large amounts of clean energy are required to accelerate to net zero goals of corporations and countries, and we are happy to have embarked on this journey emphatically in India. Our partnership with Siemens Gamesa for this benchmark model project demonstrates how establishing partnerships and collaborating across the supply chain can help us progress faster toward our decarbonization targets,” said Amit Harlalka, Vice President, ArcelorMittal and CFO, AM/NS India.   

Siemens Gamesa will manufacture the turbines in India and begin deliveries before the end of the second quarter of 2023.
