Inox Wind bags 100 MW wind power orders in Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat

Wind energy solutions provider Inox Wind Limited today said it had bagged two orders for a cumulative capacity of 100 MW from a leading renewable energy independent power producer (IPP).

The turnkey orders comprise a 50 MW project to be set up in Gujarat and a 50 MW project to be set up in Madhya Pradesh, a press release from the company said.

The projects once commissioned will provide power to about 50,000 households, curtail about 0.15 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually and further consolidate Inox Wind’s leading position in the two states, it said.

The release said that, as part of the turnkey projects, Inox Wind would provide end-to-end solutions from development and construction to commissioning and providing long-term operations and maintenance services.

The orders involve supply and installation of 25 units of Inox Wind’s 100 meter rotor dia wind turbine generator (WTG) for the Gujarat project and 25 units of the company’s 113 meter rotor dia WTG for the Madhya Pradesh project. The 113 m rotor dia WTG is the newest variant of the company’s 2 MW platform, it said.

“These orders have further boosted Inox’s strong order book with major IPPs in India. Orders from a leading renewable energy IPP prove the competitiveness of wind power in the states of Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh and ensure that Inox Wind continues to play a key role in further developing the wind energy industry in the two states,” said Mr. Kailash Tarachandani, Chief Executive Officer of Inox Wind.
