To supply 38 of its 2.7-132 onshore wind turbines at wind farms in Gujarat
GE Renewable Energy has bagged 102.6 MW wind turbine supply deal from Powerica for projects in Gujarat.
GE Renewable Energy has been selected by Powerica to supply 38 of its 2.7-132 onshore wind turbines to be installed at the Rajkot and Khambaliya wind farms in Gujarat. The 2.7-132 turbine is ideally suited for Gujarat's wind speed regime.
Both projects were won by clean energy firm Powerica through a competitive bidding process organised by Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam (GUVNL) and the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) respectively and will have an output capacity of 51.3 MW each.
The Rajkot wind farm is located about 40 km outside of Rajkot city and will comprise 19 onshore wind turbines. The Khambaliya wind farm is located 55 km outside of Jamnagar city and will comprise 19 onshore wind turbines.
The wind farms will generate clean electricity that will be sold through a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) of 25 years. Power will be distributed to consumers connected to the state grid and national grid respectively. The turbine has been designed primarily at GE's Technology Centre in Bengaluru, Karnataka.
