Gamesa, the Indian subsidiary will also look to export the 850-kW turbines to North Africa and the UK. They hope to sell machines tottaling about 750 MW this year.
The 850-kW turbine, which Gamesa believes is a workhorse for it, is ideal for medium and low wind speed regimes, whereas the spanish parent plan will stop making this class of turbines and concentrate on producing higher capacity turbines.Gamesa India assembles and sells the 850 kW and 2 MW turbines in India. It has plants near Chennai and in Gujarat.NEW 2MW MACHINE
Last month, the Spanish parent launched a new 2 MW machine, which it expects to begin manufacturing in 2014. This machine is according to Gamesa's press realease suited for low wind speed regimes such as India.It will have a higher swept area and promises more energy output than the existing 2 MW turbine.
Gamesa has said it will start making this turbine in all the markets where it has a plant. It is likely that this turbine will be launched in India too when it ready for global sales.
