Siemens Gamesa bags 250 MW solar EPC project from Sprng Energy


Siemens Gamesa has bagged its largest solar power project order of 250 MW from Sprng Energy, at Anantapuram Solar Park in the state of Andhra Pradesh.

Sprng Energy—a renewable energy platform set up in India by UK-based private equity investor Actis—has around 1650 MW of renewable energy projects across the country.

“Siemens Gamesa will provide a comprehensive EPC (engineering procurement and construction) solution that includes engineering and design of the solar farm, procurement of the balance of plants, supply of 2.25 and 2.5 MW 1500V Gamesa Electric inverters, and the installation and commissioning of the solar PV plant at Anantapuram, Andhra Pradesh,” PTI quoted from the company statement while sharing the project details.

“With this order, we have increased the pace of our solar business and we are confident of achieving sustained growth with the support of our loyal customers and an efficient team,” Siemens Gamesa India chairman and MD Ramesh Kymal said in the statement.

State-run utility NTPC is the offtaker for the solar project, which will purchase the generated solar power at a competitive tariff of Rs 2.72/kWh.

Present in India since 2009, Siemens Gamesa has total installed base of over 6 GW with both wind and solar PV projects. It started solar operations in India in 2015 by offering EPC solutions for MW-scale solar projects and off-grid and hybrid solutions.

The company—which has already made inroads in the Indian clean energy space with the development of the nation’s first wind/solar hybrid plant—has commissioned over 400 MW solar power in India and is currently executing several large solar projects in the country. Recently, it announced plans to build two large-scale solar farms of 100 MW and 60 MW capacity, respectively.
