Siemens Gamesa to supply onshore wind turbines to Azure Power

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Power of Germany has won a contract from Azure Power Global of India to supply onshore wind turbines for a 346 MW wind power project. In accordance with the agreement, Siemens Gamesa will provide 96 of its onshore SG 3.6-145 wind turbines to Azure Power for use in Karnataka. 

With the addition of the contract, Siemens Gamesa has now received more than 1.4 GW in orders for its 3.X platform in India. Azure Power aims to diversify its portfolio of solar renewable energy sources, which currently has a capacity of more than 7.4 GW, with this project. The turbines are anticipated to begin being delivered by Siemens Gamesa in the second quarter of 2023. Once fully operational, the wind farm will be able to supply Karnataka with enough clean energy to power over a million homes.

Earlier this month, Siemens Gamesa acquired a turbine contract in the Philippines from renewable developer ACEN, following the country’s initial round of renewable energy auctions. For the 70 MW Capa wind farm, Siemens Gamesa would supply 14 of its SG 5.0-145 turbines. The wind farm is being constructed in Caparispisan, Ilocos Norte, and is anticipated to start operating in the first quarter of 2024.

In July 2022, Azure Power’s 90 MW solar power facility was inaugurated by the chief minister of Assam. With this project, Azure Power’s operating capacity in India now exceeds 2.9 GW. It is the largest project in the state of Assam that was launched in a dedicated ceremony co-hosted by Azure Power and Assam Power Distribution Company Limited.
