Inox Wind Bags 50 MW Turnkey Order from GMDC
Noida, 30th September 2015: Inox Wind Limited, India’s leading wind energy solutions provider, has bagged an order for a 50 MW wind power project at Rojmal, in the state of Gujarat from Gujarat Mineral Development Corp. Ltd. (GMDC). GMDC, a Government of Gujarat undertaking, is a leading minerals and lignite mining company in India with an installed wind generating capacity of 150 MW in Gujarat. As part of the turnkey order, Inox will supply and install 25 units of its advanced 2MW DFIG 100 rotor dia Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs) for GMDC. The 100 rotor dia WTG has one of the highest swept areas, that makes it ideally suited to maximise returns, especially in low wind areas.
The 50 MW project is GMDC’s first order with Inox Wind and will be part of the “Inox Wind Park” of 400 MW capacity at Rojmal, one of many such “Wind Parks” being developed by Inox across the country. Inox will be responsible for the entire project lifecycle including wind resource assessment, building the power evacuation system, acquiring land, developing the entire site infrastructure, supplying the WTGs, erection and commissioning services as well as providing long term operations and maintenance services to GMDC.
“We are pleased that a leading government enterprise has decided to partner with Inox Wind in providing clean, sustainable and renewable power to the society at large. The order has further boosted Inox’s strong order book with major institutions in the country. We are happy to partner with GMDC in its goal to becoming the highest wind power generating Public Sector Unit in the state of Gujarat.” said Mr. Kailash Tarachandani, Chief Executive Officer of Inox Wind Limited in his statement.
