Turbine Maker Senvion Bags 591 MW Order from JSW Energy

Wind turbine maker Senvion has been awarded a 591 MW project by JSW Energy. Senvion turbines will be deployed in JSW Energy’s ongoing pipeline of ~ 2.5 GW of renewable projects which are under construction. Senvion India, owned by Saudi Infrastructure major Alfanar group, has been a key player in India’s wind equipment market.

The project will comprise of Senvion’s state-of-the-art 2.7 MW turbines. When fully deployed, these wind turbines are expected to produce enough clean energy to supply the power needs of over 450,000 Indian homes. The delivery of the turbines will start from H1 of 2022.

Maharashtra-based JSW Energy Limited is a division of JSW Group in India. JSW Energy operates in various areas of power: generation, transmission and trading.

The project also comes with a 10-year Fleet-ProTM O&M contract, which is Senvion comprehensive maintenance program for its installed turbines. Fleet-Pro delivers high quality digital interface with turbines, on-line prognosis and diagnosis and prompt service to realize full potential of the wind farm, said the company.

Prashant Jain, MD & CEO at JSW Energy, said, “We are happy to work with Senvion in our flagship wind projects. Senvion presented a high-quality proposal backed by quality turbines, strong engineering capability and an attitude to jointly work towards solutions for a successful execution of the project. We look forward to on-time completion of the under-construction wind projects.”

“It is a very satisfying win with JSW and Senvion is very thankful for the trust JSW management has put in Senvion’ solutions and team. The success of such project depends on pre-engineering and optimization which helps not only in winning but in execution later. The two teams are now working relentlessly to meet the commissioning timelines and to build a world class project. Senvion is fully committed to deliver world class technology and significantly contribute towards the vision of Indian Government to achieve 450GW of installed renewable power in the country by 2030,” added Amit Kansal, MD & CEO, of Senvion India.
