Vestas India, an arm of Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems, is looking to expand its presence in India as well as design products suited for this market. The company recently launched a new wind turbine generator suited for low-wind sites in India.
Speaking to Business Standard, senior executives of the company said Vestas’ products could be utilised for the upcoming tenders, which are mostly for hybrid projects.
“All the good windy sites are gone and repowering of old sites is not available. So the new sites coming up for wind power projects have a low profile of wind. The turbines we have launched are well suited for that,” said Vickram Jadhav, vice-president (sales), Vestas India.
“The second reason is that most of the auctions are through hybrid projects. This entails a particular profile of energy output throughout the year, throughout the day.
