Inox Wind bags 2 orders of 50 Mw capacity each in MP, Gujarat

Ltd on Monday bagged two orders for a cumulative capacity of 100 megawatt (Mw) from one of the country's leading renewable energy independent power producers.

"The turnkey orders comprise a 50 Mw project to be set up in Gujarat and another 50 Mw project to be set up in Madhya Pradesh," the company said in a regulatory filing on Monday.

Once commissioned, the projects will provide power to 50,000 households, curtail 0.15 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually and further consolidate Inox Wind's leading position in the two states, it said.

As part of the turnkey projects, the company will provide end-to-end solutions from development, construction to commissioning and providing long-term operations and maintenance services.

Further, the work involves supply and installation of 25 units of the firm's 100 metre rotor diameter wind turbine generator for the Gujarat project and 25 units of the company's 113 metre rotor diameter wind turbine generator for the project in Madhya Pradesh.

The 113 metre rotor diameter wind turbine generator is the newest variant of the company's market leading 2 Mw platform and has been tested to have one of the highest generation performance per kilowatt of all wind turbine generator variants available in India.

The firm offers wind power solutions, including wind resource assessment, acquiring land, developing the entire site infrastructure, building the power evacuation system, supplying the wind turbine generators, erection and commissioning services, long-term operations and maintenance services as well as post-commissioning support.

"The orders have boosted Inox's strong order book with major IPPs in India. Orders from a leading renewable energy IPP prove the competitiveness of wind power in Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh and ensure that continues to play a key role in further developing the wind energy industry in the two states," CEO of Ltd Kailash Tarachandani said.
