GE Renewable Energy has been selected by POWERICA to supply 38 of its 2.7-132 onshore wind turbines to be installed at the Rajkot and Khambaliya wind farms in Gujarat, India.
The Rajkot wind farm is located about 40 km outside of Rajkot city and will comprise 19 onshore wind turbines. The Khambaliya wind farm is located 55 km outside of Jamnagar city and will comprise 19 onshore wind turbines
Both projects were won by Powerica through a competitive bidding process organized by Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam (GUVNL) and Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) respectively and will have an output capacity of 51.3 MW each. The wind farms will generate clean electricity that will be sold through a long-term Power Purchase Agreement of 25 years. Power will be distributed to consumers connected to the state grid and national grid respectively.
GE Renewable Energy and POWERICA worked closely together to meet the LCOE desired for these wind projects and have created additional value by customizing the wind turbine towers.
