Chennai: Vestas recently received an order for 60 units of the V82-1.65 MW wind turbine for a wind power project located in Theni in the state of Tamil Nadu, South India. The order has been placed by CLP.

Vestas will be executing this contract and all activities, including manufacturing, planning, execution and service support for the project, from India. The V82 - 1.65 MW turbine for this project will be made in India and only a few critical components will be sourced from overseas suppliers.

The contract comprises supply and commissioning of the turbines, a VestasOnline® Business SCADA system as well as a 10-year service and maintenance agreement. Shipment of the turbines is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2009 with expected commissioning to take place in January 2010.

In India, CLP currently owns and operates 100 MW of wind power and has around 245 MW under construction in the states of Karnataka, Maharashtra and Gujarat.

"This exciting project in Theni is a major step forward for Vestas in India. We are thrilled that CLP has chosen Vestas as their wind energy solution provider to help CLP realise their own renewable energy ambitions," said Vestas Asia Pacific's President, Sean Sutton.

Vestas has been active in India for more than 10 years, and as per 30 June 2009, Vestas had installed more than 2,100 MW of wind power in India.
