Wind energy in India: Vestas 20 V110-2.0 MW wind turbines for a wind farm

Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for 20 V110-2.0 MW turbines for a wind power plant in Gujarat State, India.


The order for the Khambaliya project is an extension of an existing contract with Powerica Ltd., a rising power solutions provider in India. Among the 40 MW for this project, 12 MW constitutes an upgrade from a part of a previous order for turbines with the V100 platform, and the remaining 28 MW is newly added.

The order includes the supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines, which is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2016, as well as a five-year service contract for Vestas’ premium service package, the Active Output Management (AOM) 5000, in which Vestas guarantees a defined level of availability and performance.  The V110-2.0 MW turbine is the latest addition to Vestas’ 2 MW-platform and is well-suited for the low-wind sites in India.

“This contract with Vestas will enhance our wind power portfolio. Vestas is a trusted partner and we will continue to work with them to expand this relationship even more”, says Naresh Oberoi, Chairman of Powerica.

Jorn Hammer, Head of Vestas India, adds, “We are strengthening our operations in India, and this order confirms we are on the right track and making good progress.  We look forward to working with Powerica to deliver a top-performing wind energy power plant”.
