Siemens Gamesa has signed a deal with Singapore-based IPP Vena Energy to supply its 3.X platform turbines to a 133MW wind project in Karnataka, India.
Thirty-seven SG 3.6-145 wind turbines will be delivered for this project, with installation expected during 2023.
Siemens Gamesa and Vena Energy first partnered in 2015 with a 154MW wind farm in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India.
Following this latest order for the SG 3.6-145 turbines, Vena Energy’s portfolio with Siemens Gamesa in India will stand close to 600MW.
“We are pleased to strengthen this partnership with Vena Energy and supply them with our latest technology that can help drive a successful energy transition in India. We have worked closely since 2015 and are confident of extending this longstanding partnership in the years to come,” said Navin Dewaji, India CEO of Siemens Gamesa.
Siemens Gamesa launched the 3.X platform in 2020 and announced orders totalling 925MW last year. This new deal takes order entry for the platform in India past the 1GW mark, according to the wind turbine manufacturer.
Monika Rathi, head of Vena Energy in India, said: “We are partnering with Siemens Gamesa for the supply of their 3.6MW turbines for the Blended Wind Power Project located at Gudadur in Karnataka state. With this project, Vena Energy’s total capacity in India will reach 1,162 MW, and reinforces our commitment towards accelerating the green energy transition locally. We are confident of successfully delivering this project to our host communities of Gudadur by 2023.”
