JSW Energy awards 591MW wind turbine supply contract to Senvion India
JSW Energy has awarded a contract to Senvion India for procuring 591MW of onshore wind turbines for its under-construction pipeline of wind farms in India.
Senvion India will begin the supply of wind turbines by the second quarter of 2022. The turbines will have a capacity of 2.7MW each.
The value of the turbine supply contract was not disclosed by the parties.
Senvion India will also be responsible to execute a 10-year Fleet-Pro O&M contract. Fleet-Pro is the company’s maintenance program for its installed turbines.
The program provides digital interface with turbines, on-line prognosis, as well as diagnosis and service to realize full potential of the wind farm.
Amit Kansal — MD and CEO of Senvion India said: “It is a very satisfying contract win from JSW Energy and Senvion is very thankful for the trust the JSW management has put in Senvion’ solutions and team. The success of such project depends on pre-engineering and optimization which helps not only in winning but in execution later.
“The two teams are now working relentlessly to meet the commissioning timelines and to build a world class project. Senvion is fully committed to deliver world-class technology and significantly contribute towards the vision of Indian Government to achieve 450GW of installed renewable power in the country by 2030.”
The turbines to be supplied by the Indian wind turbine manufacturer will generate enough power to meet the annual electricity needs of over 450,000 households.
Prashant Jain — MD and CEO at JSW Energy said: “We are happy to work with Senvion in our flagship wind projects. Senvion presented a high quality proposal backed by quality turbines, strong engineering capability and an attitude to jointly work towards solutions for a successful execution of the project.
“We look forward to on-time completion of the under construction wind projects.”
