GE Renewable Energy announced today orders from Continuum Green Energy Limited to supply, install and commission 81 units of its 2.7-132 onshore wind turbines for the 218.70 MW wind power projects across Tamil Nadu and Madhya Pradesh, India. The orders have been placed by Continuum subsidiaries Continuum MP Windfarm Development Pvt Ltd and Dalavaipuram Renewables Private Limited. Last year, Continuum and GE signed an agreement to supply turbines for Continuum’s 148.5 MW Morjar, Bhuj, and 99.9 MW Rajkot wind farms in Gujarat, India.
The wind farms, which are being managed by Continuum, will provide local businesses and consumers with accessible, affordable, and reliable energy. Continuum is a leading player in offering bespoke green energy supply solutions to the Indian market.
Deepak Maloo, Regional Sales Leader for GE Renewable Energy’s Onshore Wind in Asia Pacific said, “We are pleased to extend and deepen our partnership with Continuum in India. This is truly a testament to our strong working relationship and Continuum’s continued trust in our technology and capacity to deliver turbines. We look forward to furthering our partnership with Continuum in the future as they continue to build out their renewable energy portfolio in India. Over the last year, we have secured over ~2 GW of orders in India making us one of the largest wind turbine original equipment manufacturer (OEM) suppliers in the country.”
Arvind Bansal, CEO of Continuum Green Energy said, “We are happy to collaborate with GE in our endeavor to accelerate India’s energy transition towards a sustainable and carbon neutral future. GE is a trusted partner to Continuum. Our common purpose of delivering green energy to power the future of the planet brings together a lot of synergies.”
GE’s 2.7-132 wind turbine has proven to be the technology of choice for many customers in India due to its industry-leading performance at India’s low wind speeds. The project will leverage GE’s significant local footprint in India with product design primarily at GE’s Technology Center in Bengaluru, blades manufactured in GE’s plants in Vadodara, and assembly at the GE Multi-modal Manufacturing Facility in Pune.
GE Renewable Energy is committed to enabling the energy transition by supporting the work of its customers. As part of that responsibility, the business is focused on supplying and maintaining a global fleet of renewable energy assets, helping reduce the cost of renewable energy, ensuring grid resiliency, efficiency, and reliability, and making renewable energy function in a more dispatchable fashion. GE Renewable Energy also supports the energy transition by pursuing a strategy that reflects a commitment to sustainable, circular design.
