Atria Brindavan Power Private Limited has placed a 40 MW order for the second phase of the Basavane Bagewadi Wind Farm in the Bijapur district of Karnataka state. With this order, Vestas has cumulatively received 80 MW in orders from Atria for the project.

The order includes supply and installation of 18 V110-2.2 MW turbines, a 15-year full-scope Active Output Management 5000 (AOM5000) service agreement as well as a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance. Commissioning is expected for the second quarter of 2018.

“With this  second order from Atria in just over a month, Vestas underlines that we can provide reliable and competitive solutions along with proven operation and maintenance support to our customers in India. The project also demonstrates the effectiveness of Vestas’ 2 MW platform as the best value proposition on delivering low cost of energy for the competitive Indian market”, said Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific.

With more than 37 GW installed in 45 countries on six continents since its debut, Vestas’ 2 MW platform is the most widely installed platform in the industry.

With this project, Vestas has received more than 230 MW of orders in India in 2017.
