Gamesa has secured an order from Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Limited (IL&FS) for a 50 MW wind farm project at Ambah in Madhya Pradesh
It is the first contract to be won from IL&FS. Gamesa will carry out the turbines supply, installation and commissioning in the project. The company will also be in charge of the turnkey construction of the wind farm, performing the corresponding civil engineering tasks.
The project is located at Ambah, a city and a municipality in Morena district and it will comprised 25 units of its G114-2.0MW wind turbines.
This contract is part of several contracts signed recently in India. Specifically, the company will supply a total of 278 MW for several customers with 139 wind turbines. In total, Gamesa will supply 99 turbines (198 MW) of the G114-2.0 model and 40 turbines (80 MW) of the G97-2.0 MW model.

In addition, Gamesa has continued to strengthen its industrial activity in this region, which accounts for about 30% of the company’s total sales. In February, Gamesa inaugurated a new factory in the state of Andhra Pradesh which, already up and running, is earmarked for the manufacture of the blades for this model of turbine.
