Envision Energy today announced that it has been awarded a 2000 MW wind turbine order in India. The 596 wind turbines, all manufactured in Envision’s India factory, will be delivered by the end of 2023.
Envision will supply and commission its state-of-the-art EN156/3.3 wind turbines for the projects. EN 156/3.3 has a 156m rotor – the largest in the country. This rotor is coupled with a 3.3MW generator and a hub height of 140m. This design is uniquely suited to maximize energy produced from the low wind regimes predominant in the country.
Envision invested $25M USD to establish its 1200 MW-capacity nacelle and hub assembly plant at Pune in 2018. To meet the increased market demands, Envision will be ramping up to double the current capacity. Envision is also building a blade factory in India, which is expected to be completed by Q1 of 2023.
Envision’s existing projects in India, the 198MW Khagashree wind farm and 35MW Kagvard wind farm equipped with EN- 131/2.5MW wind turbines, have been in operation since May and October 2019 respectively. So far, these projects have generated more than 1.76 billion kWh clean energy for the region.
“Envision India is proud to contribute towards India’s commitment to achieve 500 GW and 50% energy requirement from renewable energy sources by 2030. With the growth of our wind and energy storage business, we are expecting to recruit more than 300 employees locally to meet the growing needs of the country as well as the newer markets of the Asia Pacific region.” says R P V Prasad, Country Head – India Region.
