EBR Staff Writer Published 09 October 2017

Inox Wind has secured a contract to develop 250MW wind project in Kutch region in Gujarat state of India.

The company has received 250MW project under the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) - II auction.

Inox Wind will build the project over a period of one year.

The company will supply, erect and commission the 2MW wind turbine generators (WTGs), which will have a hub height of 120m and 113m rotor diameter.

The 113m rotor diameter WTG can also be installed in low wind areas.

In addition, Inox Wind will offer long term operations and maintenance services for the 250MW project. The firm secured the project through quoting fixed price of Rs2.65 per unit for 25 years.

Earlier this year, the company has received a contract for the 300MW project under the SECI-I auction.

In August, Inox Wind also secured a contract to develop 100MW wind power project in the area of Kutch for Adani Green Energy.

Inox Wind CEO Kailash Tarachandani said: “We are delighted with winning 250MW in the SECI-II auction.

“This win solidifies our belief that Inox Wind would be a major beneficiary in the auction based market regime, due to its inherent cost-competitive advantage which allows us to execute these projects on a profitable basis.”

Inox is India’s wind energy solutions provider, which operates three manufacturing plants in Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

Gujarat’s facility produces blades and tubular towers, while Himachal Pradesh’s facility manufactures hubs and nacelles.

The new facility in Madhya Pradesh produces blades and towers, as well as nacelles and hubs.
