Wind turbine manufacturer and developer Gamesa has received an order for 46MW of wind turbines from the ITC group in India.
The order, consisting of the supply and installation of 23 Gamesa 2MW turbines, will go to ITC Paperboards and Speciality Papers Division.
Commissioning of the wind farm at Tagguparthi, Andhra Pradesh, is expected for the first quarter of 2014. Gamesa will also provide operations and maintenance services.
This latest order brings Gamesa’s supply total over the past month to 230MW with 130MW going to CLP India and a further 100MW to Greenko, with potential for it to be extended to 200MW.
The company has installed over 830MW of capacity throughout the country and has more than 700MW under operations and maintenance agreements.
Yesterday NewNet reported that the developer, in the midst of a heavy restructuring operation, has reached an agreement with Spanish unions to cut 342 jobs in the country, down from the 394 originally planned in May.
The jobs are planned to be cut from the Albacete facility in Castilla-La Mancha, the Tudela facility in Navarre, and carries out a downsizing at its As Somozas, Galicia facility.
Gamesa’s restructuring efforts are part of its new business plan for 2013 to 2015 as it attempts to reduce staff counts by 20 per cent.
