GE Renewable Energy has been selected by SB Energy to supply, install and commission 121 sets of its 2,7-132 onshore wind turbines, totaling 327 MW, to be installed at the Pritam Nagar wind farm in Madhya Pradesh, India.
The project was won by SB Energy during the VI installment of wind projects by Solar Energy Corporation of India and will generate enough green energy for 250,000 households in India.
This is another achievement for GE’s 2.7-132 wind turbine, which has proved to be the technology of choice for customers in India due to its industry-leading output at low wind speeds in India.
Supply for this project will exploit GE’s large local footprint in India, with product design primarily at the GE Technology Center in Bengaluru, blades produced at GE plants in Vadodara and Bengaluru, and assembly at the GE Multimodal Manufacturing Facility in Pune.
“We are proud to be selected by SB Energy to execute this flagship project for the country. It is one of the largest wind projects ever awarded in India and will significantly contribute to the country’s renewable aspirations. The project is a testament to GE’s ability to not only offer state of the art technology but also site development solutions to maximize customer returns. We sincerely thank SB Energy for its trust and look forward to furthering our partnership as it continues to build its renewable energy portfolio.”Gilan Sabatier, regional leader for GE Renewable Energy’s onshore wind business in South Asia and ASEAN.
