Pune: Kenersys India, part of the Kalyani Group launched the K100 2.5 MW wind turbine at Windpower India 2011 - International Conference & Exhibition. The K100 2.5MW turbines will be manufactured at the Kenersys' recently launched production facility at Baramati, near Pune, which is already producing the successful megawatt turbine K82 2.0MW.

The K100 2.5MW with 100 meter rotor diameter and 2.5 MW rated power and a tower height of 85 and 100 meters is one of the largest turbines in India.

The K100 2.5 MW was introduced first in Europe as a prototype for Vattenfall, one of the largest utilities and wind farm owners in Europe. It is now the best performing turbine in the whole Vattenfall onshore turbine fleet.

"The K100 2.5MW turbine represents the next step in our evolutionary product portfolio and expands our capabilities to serve the Indian market enabling our customers to have the lowest Cost of Energy and a maximum project IRR on a specific site," said Paulo Fernando Soares, KENERSYS Group CEO. It offers the maximum energy yield even at low and moderate wind regimes in India.

Wind sites in India largely fall in the low & moderate wind regimes. The K100 is expected to enable Kenersys to significantly expand its ability to cover a broader range of wind conditions and hence cater to the unexplored wind sites in India, giving it a distinct competitive advantage.

"This product marks a fitting addition to our product portfolio. We started the development of new turbines in 2007 with a major focus on developing multi - megawatt turbines suited for the world market and to create value for our customers by building on proven performance and reliability in combination with its spearheading electronical architecture that ensures a perfect integration into the grid. The K100 is a testament to our commitment to becoming a major player in the Indian wind turbine market," said Kailash Tarachandani, CEO, KENERSYS India.

KENERSYS has set ambitious targets to rapidly expand its footprint in the growing Indian wind energy market.
