The project was won by Continuum Green Energy during the tranche-VI auction of wind projects by Solar Energy Corporation of India and will produce enough green energy to power 125,000 households across the country.

This is another success for GE’s 2.7-132 wind turbine which has proven to be the technology of choice for customers in India due to its industry leading performance at India’s low wind speeds. The supply for this project will leverage GE’s significant local footprint in India with product design primarily at GE’s Technology Centre in Bengaluru, blades manufactured in GE’s plants in Vadodara and assembly at the GE Multi-modal Manufacturing Facility in Pune.

“We are proud to be selected by Continuum Green Energy to execute this project which will significantly contribute to the country’s renewable aspirations” said Gilan Sabatier, Commercial Leader for GE Renewable Energy’s Onshore Wind International business. “The project is a testament to the ability of our teams to not only offer state of the art technology but also do so in shorter than industry turn-around times. We sincerely thank Continuum Green Energy for its trust and look forward to furthering our partnership as it continues to build its renewable energy portfolio.”

Arvind Bansal, CEO for Continuum Green Energy added that synergies in Continuum’s development capabilities and GE’s capabilities in manufacturing and delivering turbines timely will be of great value to the project and that a long-term full-service agreement with GE for the wind turbines will also go a long way in ensuring high performance levels of the project.
