Inox Wind Bags Orders in Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat


New Delhi: Inox Wind Ltd has bagged two orders for a cumulative capacity of 100 MW from one of the leading renewable energy independent power producers of the country.

“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.

The projects once commissioned 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 firm’s 100 metre rotor diameter wind turbine generator for the Gujarat project and 25 units of the company’s 113 metre rotor diameter WTG for the project in Madhya Pradesh.

The 113 meter rotor diameter WTG 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 WTG 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 WTGs, 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 Inox Wind continues to play a key role in further developing the wind energy industry in the two states ” Inox Wind CEO Kailash Tarachandani said.
