The installation of India’s first 3x platform Wind Turbine Generators (WTG) in Gadag, Karnataka, was announced today by ReNew Power (“ReNew”), the country’s largest renewable energy firm by operational capacity.
The WTGs are 128-140m tall with nameplate capacities ranging from 3.3 to 3.465 MW. Compared to the types that have been deployed in India up to this point, which typically have a nameplate capacity of 2-3 MW, they offer much more capacity.
The new wind turbine generators will be a component of the nation’s first “Round The Clock” renewable energy project, which combines wind, solar, and a battery energy storage system (BESS). The energy produced by this project will be sufficient to provide more than 1 million Indian homes per year.
