German wind turbine manufacturer Senvion is to supply 220 turbines for a 500 MW windfarm in India.

The turbines will be installed in phases from the end of next year to 2019 with commissioning of the first phase by the end of 2017.

A Senvion service center in India has already been set up and will be responsible for turbine maintenance for 10 years. The Indian subsidiary of Senvion started operations in Mumbai in February, while in August Senvion announced the acquisition of the assets of Indian wind turbine manufacturer Kenersys.

Senvion chief executive Jürgen Geissinger said: “Earlier this year we announced our decision to enter the Indian market. Now we are proud to present this firm framework agreement that is the start of a strong future cooperation. This contract emphasizes our planned growth story in India.”
