ReNew Power installs first 3x platform wind turbine generators in India

ReNew Power has announced the installations of India’s first-ever 3x platform wind turbine generators (WTG) in Gadag, Karnataka.

The WTGs have a nameplate capacity of 3.3-3.465 MW and are 128-140m in height. They offer significantly improved capacity over models installed in India to date, which typically have a nameplate capacity of 2-3 MW. The new WTGs will be a part of the country’s first ‘round the clock’ renewable energy project, combining wind, solar and a battery energy storage system (BESS). This project will produce enough energy to power over 1 million households in India annually. In a national first for an Indian business, other than an original equipment manufacturer, the installations have been completely executed by in-house wind engineering, procurement, and construction team – including land procurement, the construction of foundations, crane management for the WTG installations and transmission build-out. ReNew completed the on-site installations of the WTGs in five days each.
