With the commissioning of the wind farm, Greenko’s total generating portfolio is now 561MW, an 81.6% increase since April 2013.

The €13m project, which was completed on schedule, will sell its output to a commercial customer in Bangalore under a 10-year indexed power purchase agreement..

The wind farm is equipped with Vensys V87 1.5 MW gearless turbine made by ReGen.

The Mangalore wind farm is co-located with Greenko’s Basvanbagewadi (151.2MW) and Matrix (15MW) wind farms and shares their existing 180MW grid connection. Basvanbagewadi Phase-1 (51.2MW) and Matrix are both operational.

Greenko CEO Anil Chalamalasetty said, "Our strategy of building large wind farms in a phased manner, using the latest low wind speed turbine technology and connecting to the high voltage transmission grid, means we can deliver significant, predictable and profitable growth.

"Mangalore is the sixth wind farm we have commissioned this financial year and we expect to commission a further three wind farms before July’s monsoon. This should give us almost 700 MW for our 2014-15 financial year’s main generating season – a 125% increase on the previous year," Anil added.
