GE Renewable Energy has received an order from JSW Energy to supply 810 MW of onshore wind turbines for their planned wind farms in Tamil Nadu, India. JSW will develop the wind farms. GE will also develop bespoke solutions and trainings to enable JSW teams gain O&M expertise to operate the turbines in the long term. The supply of the turbines will start by the second quarter of 2022 and be completed by the first quarter of 2021.
JSW Energy selected GE’s 2.7 MW model assembled at GE Renewable Energy’s site in Pune, India. Blades will be provided by LM Wind Power, a GE Renewable Energy business, from its factory in Halol, Gujrat, India.
Prashant Jain, Joint Managing Director and CEO of JSW Energy, said: “Our company has set a target to reach 20 GW of power generation capacity by 2030, when the share of green and renewable energy projects will increase to 85 per cent of our total portfolio. This project is our first large-scale wind power project.”
