GE Renewable Energy and SB Energy to sign wind power project in India
India, New Delhi: GE Renewable Energy announced on 15 October its selection by SB Energy (SoftBank Group) to supply, install and commission onshore wind turbines at Pritam Nagar wind farm in Madhya Pradesh, India.
The project was won by SB Energy during the tranche-VI auction of wind projects by Solar Energy Corporation of India and will produce enough green energy for 250,000 households in India. GE will supply 121 sets of its 2.7-132 onshore wind turbines, cumulating 327 MW.
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 Bengaluru and assembly at the GE Multi-modal Manufacturing Facility in Pune.
Gilan Sabatier, Regional Leader for GE Renewable Energy’s Onshore Wind business in South Asia and ASEAN said, “We are proud to be selected by SB Energy to execute this flagship project for the country. It is one of the largest wind projects ever awarded in India and will significantly contribute to the country’s renewable aspirations.”
