Envision Energy bags 2,000 MW wind contract in India

Envision Energy told the media that it had secured a 2,000 MW wind turbine contract in India. The 596 wind turbines manufactured in Envision’s India factory will be delivered by 2023.

The company will be supplying and commissioning its state-of-the-art EN156/3.3 wind turbines for the projects. EN 156/3.3 has a 156 m rotor. The rotor is coupled with a 3.3 MW generator and a hub of 140 m. It is designed to maximize the energy produced from the low wind regimes predominant in India.

Envision invested $25 million to establish its 1,200 MW capacity nacelle and hub assembly plant at Pune in 2018. The company further plans to double its existing capacity. Envision is also developing a blade factory in India, which might be completed by the first quarter (Q1) of 2023.

Its existing projects in India, the 198 MW Khagashree wind farm and 35 MW Kagvad wind farm equipped with EN-131/2.5 MW wind turbines, have been in operation since May and October 2019. These projects have generated over 1.76 billion KWh of clean energy for the region.

Country Head–India Region, R P V Prasad, said Envision India contributes towards India’s commitment to achieving 500 GW and 50% energy requirement from renewable energy sources by 2030. With the wind and energy storage business, the company is expecting to recruit over 300 employees locally to cater to the growing needs of the country and newer markets of the Asia Pacific region.

Managing Director of Envision India and Global Vice President, Kane Xu, said that by using digital technologies, the company could maximize efficiency, save cost, and innovate fast to serve the customers. Along with wind power, the company is bringing energy storage, digital, and other net-zero solutions to the customers to help accelerate the energy transition.
