Siemens Gamesa has notched a second significant deal this month with ReNew Power to supply its
industry leading turbines to a 322 MW wind project in Tondehal. This follows the 301 MW order with
ReNew for a wind project in Hombal signed at the beginning of July, and together they provide muchneeded momentum to the country’s energy transition.
In total, the company will deliver 180 of its new SG 3.4-145 wind turbines in the state of Karnataka,
covering 93 units for the Tondehal project in the Koppal district, and 87 units for the 301 MW Hombal
project in the Gadag district (87 units, 301 MW). Supply of these turbines is expected to commence
during Siemens Gamesa’s financial year 2022.
Siemens Gamesa launched the SG 3.4-145 turbine in 2020 despite an ongoing pandemic, and this
marks the first order for this next-generation wind turbine for the Indian market.
Siemens Gamesa will supply the wind turbines for ReNew Power’s projects from its manufacturing
plants in India. The 301 MW project was announced to the Spanish stock exchange on July 5, with
both orders registered in the fourth quarter of the fiscal year.
Siemens Gamesa and ReNew power first partnered in 2012 for a 22 MW wind farm in the state of
Maharashtra. Since that time Siemens Gamesa has developed wind farms for ReNew power across
five wind-rich states in the country which are powered by turbines ranging from the company’s legacy
850 kW turbine to its latest SG 3.4-145 turbine. Today, with over 1 GW of commissioned capacity of
wind projects, Siemens Gamesa serves over 30% of ReNew’s wind portfolio and stands as one of the
most trusted renewable energy partners for the company in India.
“We are happy to announce these two large deals for the SG 3.4-145 turbine with ReNew Power, one
of our long-standing customers in India and we thank Renew for their trust in our capabilities. Deals of
this scale provide much needed momentum for the Indian wind industry, and I am confident that this
product will set the pace for the next-generation growth for wind in the country. With a 7GW installed
base, India will remain an important market for Siemens Gamesa and we are fully committed to
contributing to the country’s renewable energy targets,” said Navin Dewaji, India CEO of Siemens
The SG 3.4-145 wind turbine is based on the SG 3.4-132, with several GWs installed worldwide. The
turbine delivers a nominal power of 3.465 MW and can operate up to 3.6 MW under specific site
conditions. With an increased rotor swept area of 41%, which delivers 48% more AEP than the
previous SG 2.2-122, the SG 3.4-145 is one of the most efficient and cost-effective solutions in the
Siemens Gamesa has operated in India since 2009, and the base installed by the company recently
surpassed the 7 GW mark. The company has blade factories in Nellore (Andhra Pradesh), a nacelle
factory in Mamandur (Chennai, Tamil Nadu), and an operations & maintenance center in Red Hills
(Chennai, Tamil Nadu).
