Wind turbine manufacturing specialist Siemens Gamesa has signed a deal with Singapore-based Vena Energy to supply its 3.X platform turbines for a 133 MW wind project in the Koppal district in Karnataka, India.

As per the contract, the Spanish-German company will deliver 37 SG 3.6-145 wind turbines for this project with installation expected during Siemens Gamesa’s financial year 2023. 

Commenting on the order win, Navin Dewaji, India CEO of Siemens Gamesa, said “we are pleased to strengthen this partnership with Vena Energy and supply them with our latest technology that can help drive a successful energy transition in India. We have worked closely since 2015 and are confident of extending this longstanding partnership in the years to come.”

The company launched this new platform in 2020 amidst the ongoing pandemic and secured orders totalling 925 MW last year. This new deal took order entry for its 3.X platform in India past the 1 GW mark. 

“We are partnering with Siemens Gamesa for the supply of their 3.6 MW turbines for the blended wind power project located at Gudadur in Karnataka state. With this project, Vena Energy’s total capacity in India will reach 1,162 MW, and reinforces our commitment towards accelerating the green energy transition locally. We are confident of successfully delivering this project to our host communities of Gudadur by 2023,” said Monika Rathi, Head of Vena Energy India.

In 2015, the two companies first partnered for a 154 MW wind farm in Andhra Pradesh, India. Since then, Vena Energy has added over 300 MW of wind power projects in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat. Following this latest order for the SG 3.6-145 turbines, Vena Energy’s portfolio with Siemens Gamesa in India will stand close to 600 MW.

Siemens Gamesa has operated in India since 2009, and the base installed by the company recently surpassed the 8 GW mark. The company has blade factories in Nellore (Andhra Pradesh), a nacelle factory in Mamandur (Chennai, Tamil Nadu), and an operations and maintenance center in Red Hills (Chennai, Tamil Nadu).
