Gamesa to develop 130 MW of solar in India


Gamesa, a Spanish renewables developer chiefly known for its prowess in the wind power sector, has revealed this week that it has been selected to develop two large-scale solar PV plants in India totaling a combined capacity of 130 MW.

Indian power developer Atria Power selected Gamesa as the EPC for its two solar projects, one with a capacity of 90 MW and the other with a capacity of 40 MW. Gamesa will not only design, engineer and build the solar farms, but will also handle all post-completion operations and maintenance in addition to providing 96 of its E1.37 MW solar inverters, produced by Gamesa Electric.

Commissioning for both solar projects is expected to begin in March next year. The 90 MW plant is to be located in the state of Karnataka, with the 40 MW plant being built in Andhra Pradesh.

"This contract marks a fresh milestone in our strategy in the solar power segment in India," said Gamesa CEO in India, Ramesh Kymal.

The Spanish-headquartered firm entered the Indian solar market in 2015, and has set out in its 2015-17 business plan goals to develop solar power projects around the world, chiefly to augment its sizable wind power presence in many regions.
