Siemens Gamesa has won EPC contracts for 160MW of Indian solar projects, consisting of 100MW from an unnamed major Indian utility and 60MW from an IPP.

The utility project is located in Tamil Nadu and the IPP project is in Karnataka. The projects are earmarked to be commissioned in March 2018.

Ramesh Kymal, chairman and managing director, Siemens Gamesa India, said: “Today India is one of the most promising markets for renewable energy. The country has witnessed incremental growth in the solar segment in the last three years and we expect the momentum to increase in the coming years. Having firmed up our roots in solar business, we are fully geared to contribute to the government's target of 100 GW of solar power by 2022.”

The firm is also working on a major solar and wind hybrid project in Karnataka.
