Spanish wind turbine maker Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has secured multiple windpower contracts for a total of 140MW from several industrial customers and an independent power producer (IPP) in India, as per the news records.
The majority of the contracts have been awarded by industrial customers, such as textile, auto ancillary and pharmaceutical companies, who intend to increase their renewable energy supply. The turbine manufacturer will be completing these projects on an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis.

We are witnessing encouragingly growing interest from industrial customers who are becoming a sizable number in our order portfolio. “These orders show a positive sign of development in the market and it boosts our confidence significantly.”
