The wind turbine facility has an initial production capacity of 200 MW per year and will employ more than 100 people. Gamesa has contracts in India and neighbouring countries for a total power output of 60 MW.

The wind turbine facility is the result of a strategic wager placed by Gamesa to establish itself industrially in markets having high-growth potential and to achieve greater production capacity at more competitive conditions, the company says.

Gamesa already has a wind turbine operation in China with a production capacity of 1 GW per year.
