GE Vernova to Power up 108 MW Wind Project of Amplus Solar Amplus Solar Signs $3.2 Million Deal with AirTouch for Robotic Cleaning

Sustainable energy firm GE Vernova has been picked by Amplus Solar- a firm that provides distributed energy, for its 108 MW wind power project. The project will established be in Tamil Nadu, and is expected to be commissioned by August 2024.

“GE Vernova will supply and commission 40 units of its 2.7-132 onshore wind turbines for this 108 MW wind power project. With this order, GE recorded more than 3 GW of orders in India with its 2.7 MW turbine and anticipates crossing 5 GW of onshore wind installed base in the country by early 2024.” the firm said.

The wind farm will provide accessible, affordable, and reliable green energy to local businesses and consumers, the firm added.

The project will leverage GE’s significant local footprint in India with product design primarily at GE’s technology centre in Bengaluru, turbines assembled at GE’s manufacturing facility in Pune and blades manufactured at LM Wind Power’s plant in Vadodara.

Deepak Maloo, Regional Sales Leader for GE Vernova’s onshore wind business in Asia Pacific said, “GE has demonstrated expertise in India, having installed over 50 per cent of new wind capacity in the country last year. We are thankful to Amplus Solar for entrusting us with their first wind farm and look forward to furthering our partnership as the company continues to build its renewable energy portfolio under the leadership of Petronas.”

Amplus Solar CEO, Sharad Pungalia, said, “We are happy to have found an experienced partner GE Vernova as we take another step in contributing to the country’s net-zero targets with our first wind-power project. We are confident that together, we can create the synergies needed for the successful completion of this project.”

GE Vernova claims that its  2.7-132 wind turbine has proven to be the technology of choice for many customers in India due to its industry leading performance at India’s low wind speeds.

Earlier, Amplus Solar, joined hands with EverRenew, an NTC group company, for the establishment of a 200 MWp open-access solar power plant in Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu. The plant is slated to generate close to 450 million units of green electricity in the first year of its operation itself. The firm had also entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Andhra Pradesh government. This agreement will pave the way for the establishment of multiple decentralized Green Hydrogen production plants in the state.
