The new production line will produce the G114-2.0 MW turbine model, which will be introduced by Gamesa into the Indian market over the course of 2015.

Configured as a multi-model line, the nacelle facility can produce two models in parallel such as the G114-2.0 MW and the G97-2.0 MW, which are a part of Gamesa’s 2.0MW-2.5MW platform.

The investment in enhanced production line is expected to improve the factory’s existing annual capacity up to 1,700MW.

Gamesa chairman and CEO Ignacio Martín said: "In order to defend this position and reinforce our commitment to development of the country’s wind energy sector, over the next five years we plan to invest around €100 million in strengthening our manufacturing capabilities especially for the launch of new products like G114-2.0 MW, further developing our local supply chain and increasing our wind farm development pipeline, a strong competitive advantage in India."

Gamesa Business CEO Xabier Etxeberria said: "The new G114-2.0 MW turbine which Gamesa will introduce into the Indian market in 2015 significantly cuts the cost of energy of the products custom-designed by the company for low and medium wind speed sites, thereby maximising their performance."

The company also operates a blade plant in Halol, in the state of Gujarat, as well as a repair centre in Red Hills, Chennai.
