Wind energy Gamesa supply wind turbines in Gujarat

Gamesa Wind Turbine Pvt Ltd, the Indian arm of the Spain-based wind turbines manufacturer Gamesa, announced its foray into Gujarat.

In 2011, the company had planned an installation wind farm capacity of 25 MW in Gujarat, of which 16 MW has already been installed and commissioned, Gamesa Wind Turbines Chairman and Managing Director Ramesh Kymal said.

The wind power firm is also tapping Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka as a wind farm developer, he said.
This year, 5.1 MW has been commissioned in Andhra Pradesh, while about 20 MW would be installed by the end of 2011 in Madhya Pradesh.

In addition, the company is scheduled to install 20 MW in Jath, Maharashtra and 25 MW in sites at Shirgaon and Chikodi, Karnataka, Kymal said.

"Wind energy is a vastly underutilised renewable resource with tremendous potential in India," he said. "We strongly believe that wind energy would be the most sustainable option that could meet the growing energy requirement not only in Gujarat, Karnataka and Maharashtra but also across India." "Going forward, we will look at forging strong partnerships and emerge as a strong player in India," he added.
