Inox Wind Limited, one of India’s leading wind energy solutions provider, has signed an exclusive agreement with AMSC, a global solutions provider serving the wind and power grid industry, to launch the 3MW wind turbine which is especially suitable for low wind regimes in India. The 3MW wind turbine platform is a globally operating and proven platform. This agreement comes on back of the existing licence for the 2MW range of wind turbines currently being offered by Inox Wind.
The state-of-the-art 3MW wind turbine extends the existing WTG product offering from Inox Wind and reinforces the Company’s position as the leading wind turbine manufacturer in the country. The 3MW wind turbine is going to be a revolutionary product in India which would improve energy yields, reduce levelised cost of energy (LCoE) and offer superior performance which would help harness wind sites optimally and set new benchmarks in the Indian wind industry. This product would also support the competitive tariff environment currently present under the auction regime in India.
Inox Wind currently offers the 2 MW turbines with multiple blade and tower variants and would launch the 3MW turbine with higher rotor diameter and hub height tower. AMSC’s state-of-the-art wind turbine designs range from offerings of 2MW to 10 MW and more than 15,000 MW of installed capacity has been operating globally for multiple years based
on AMSC’s designs.
