Gamesa to deliver its first G97-2.0 MW Class S turbines, purpose-designed for the Indian market

The company has signed a new agreement with Orange for the supply of 25 G97-2.0 MW Class S turbines at the Khanapur wind farm; this contract tops up the recently announced 50 MW supply agreement for this same project

Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind energy, is set to supply its first G97-2.0 MW Class S turbines in India, a new model specifically designed for low wind speed sites in this market.

The company has signed a new agreement * with Orange, one of the country’s leading independent power producers (IPP), for the supply of 50 MW of its G97-2.0 MW Class S turbines at Khanapur site, located in Maharashtra, India. This is the second agreement secured by Gamesa from Orange, after having announced in October the delivery of another 50 MW at this same Khanapur facility.

As a result, the company is poised to supply, install and commission a total of 50 of its G97-2.0 MW Class S turbines at Khanapur wind farm. With a tower height of 104 metres, Gamesa has designed this variant -already certified by TÜV NORD- specifically for the Indian market, with a view to maximising turbine performance at low wind speed sites.

The company will also provide the facility’s operation and maintenance services under a long-term arrangement. The first phase of 50 MW of the project commissioning is scheduled to be completed by March of this year, while the second phase of 50 MW is expected to be commissioned by June.
