After the release of Siemens Gamesa's quarterly report two days ago, the manufacturer's CFO said he was "proud" of efforts on the Indian market. Now the company has disclosed why – an order from Renew Power for two projects in the Gujarat and Karnataka provinces has led to a 567 MW order for the turbine manufacturer.

The order is part of a host of orders announced in Tuesday's quarterly report and accounts for 97 percent of the 583 MW order intake to the Indian market announced over the last three months of 2018.

The customer is one of India's largest independent electricity producers (IPP) Renew Power and the order is for 270 of Siemens Gamesa's 2.1-122 turbines. Renew Power's orders from Siemens Gamesa now make up over one GW.

"Continued large orders from leading IPP's such as ReNew demonstrates customers' trust in our capabilities, and encourages us to work on innovative technologies focused on delivering more value for our customers," said Ramesh Kymal, Onshore CEO of Siemens Gamesa in India.

Altogether, Siemens Gamesa has received 1,556 MW in orders from the Indian market, approximately 17 percent of its total sales.
