Siemens Gamesa is to construct what it claims to be India's first large-scale commercial hybrid solar and wind project, by connecting 28.8MW of solar to an existing 50MW wind plant in Karnataka.

Under an agreement with an unnamed independent Indian operator, Siemens Gamesa will provide an end-to-end turnkey solution, including EPC services. It will provide PV inverters from Gamesa Electric to the hybrid project that already uses Siemens Gamesa turbines.
