Commenting on winning the order, Deepak Maloo, Regional Sales Leader for GE Renewable Energy’s Onshore Wind International in the Asia Pacific, said, “we are thrilled to build on our relationship with Continuum in contributing towards meeting India’s renewable energy targets. We would like to thank Continuum for its trust and look forward to furthering our partnership as they continue to expand their renewable energy portfolio. GE Renewable Energy secured over 1.2GW+ orders in India last year, making it the largest wind turbine original equipment manufacturer (OEM) supplier in India.”
Last year, the two organisations had signed an agreement to supply turbines to the 148.5 MW Morjar, Bhuj wind farm in Gujarat, India.
The Rajkot wind farm is managed by Continuum, a leading player in offering bespoke green energy supply solutions with currently 639 MW tied in with up to 130 customers across India out of its total capacity of 1300 MW.
“Continuum Green Energy is committed to contributing to climate-friendly energy transition in India. We are proud to partner with GE to accelerate our efforts to bring more renewable energy to the grid. Synergies in Continuum’s development capabilities and GE’s capabilities in manufacturing and delivering turbines on time will bring great value to our projects,” said Arvind Bansal, CEO for Continuum Green Energy.
Meanwhile, the project will leverage the company’s significant local footprint in India with product design taking place primarily at its Technology Center in Bengaluru, blades being manufactured in its plants in Vadodara and assembly occurring at the GE multi-modal manufacturing facility in Pune.
