Wind Turbines in India – List of Types,Sizes,Capacity of Turbines from Wind Turbine Manufacturers

2 Comment

India’s Wind Energy Market is the 5th largest in the world and is the biggest renewable energy sector in India (non-hydro).Wind Power forms almost 70% of the Alternative Energy Capacity in the country and will have  an important role to play to meet India’s target of 10% Renewable Energy from Electricity by 2020.Wind Energy is very cost effective in terms of cost and is approaching Gas Electricity Prices.Combined with the favorable tax treatment,accelerated depreciation,subsidies by different sates,Wind Energy has become the favored Green Energy Sector for investment by large private sector companies.Wind Power Plants in India are increasing in number and scale as larger companies like Caparo enter the Wind Power Sector.Wind Turbine Manufacturers in India are fast expanding capacity and investment to capitalize on this opportunity.Suzlon remains the Bid Daddy of the Wind Industry in India,however a number of foreign and domestic Wind Turbine Manufacturers are giving it a run for its money.Global Wind Turbine Leaders like Siemens,Enercon,GE have started Wind Turbine Equipment Manufacturing in India in recent times to lower their costs.Here is a list of the Major Wind Turbines available in India of different types and capacities from the various Different Wind Manufacturers.

Wind Turbines in India

Wind Energy Companies in India has been rising though except for Suzlon,no company is world class.Note India has Wind Turbines that are being sold in 225-2000 Kilowatt sizes.Suzlon is also in the process of introducing a 2250 KW Wind Turbine.Note most of the foreign Wind Turbine Producers sell Tubulur Steel Type Turbines while most of the smaller domestic players make Lattice Type Wind Turbines.India’s domestic WTG companies mostly have licensed their Wind Designs from international companies like Vensys,Vestas,American Superconductor and others.Here is a list of the Wind Turbines in India (source CWET).Note this list is not exhaustive.

Summary

Wind Turbines in India are still restricted to small sizes and less sophisticated technology than those available in the Western Markets.India still does not install a lot of direct drive wind turbines which is becoming the Wind Turbines of choice these days.Also the larger Wind Turbines of 3 MW and greater sizes is not sold in India till now.Many of the Wind Farms at least the smaller Farms use the 250 KW Wind Turbines.Note many small Wind Farms in India were built to capitalize on the depreciation and tax incentives rather than on their Efficient Running.
