As part of the contract, Siemens Gamesa provided an EPC (engineering procurement and construction) solution that included engineering and design of the solar farm, procurement, erection and commissioning of the 10 MW photovoltaic (PV) solar farm near Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, a company statement said. 

Founded in 1962, LMW is a leading textile machinery manufacturer that produces the entire range of textile spinning machinery. It also makes machine tools, high precision environment-friendly castings, and aerospace products. 

“It is quite encouraging for us to see original equipment manufacturers like LMW taking confidence in renewable energy and reinvesting in this technology to power their industries. The growing interests towards renewable energy from various industries will certainly pace up the momentum in achieving India’s renewable energy targets,” Siemens Gamesa India CEO Ramesh Kymal said in the statement. 

Present in India since 2009, the accumulated base installed by Siemens Gamesa recently topped the 6 GW mark with both wind and solar PV projects. 

The company has two blade factories in Nellore (Andhra Pradesh) and Halol (Gujarat), a nacelle factory in Mamandur (Chennai, Tamil Nadu) and an operations and maintenance center in Red Hills (Chennai, Tamil Nadu).

“The company has made use of internal accruals to fund the same”, LMW released in a statement. Adding that it has windmills with an installed capacity of 36.80 MW and the power generated would be used to meet its captive power requirements.

In February, Siemens Gamesa secured a new order from ReNew Power, India’s one of the largest renewable energy Independent Power Producer (IPP), to supply 270 wind turbines. The scope further includes the supply of 270 units of the SG 2.1-122 wind turbines, with a total capacity of 567 MW, to two wind power facilities which will be developed in the states of Gujarat and Karnataka.
