Gautam Adani, one of the wealthiest people in Asia, declared the initial stage of constructing a selection of “made in India” wind turbines as it revealed type certification for a new design.
Adani Enterprises Ltd informed investors on the Mumbai Stock Exchange that its subsidiary, Adani New Industries Ltd, was granted a key international endorsement from WindGuard GmbH for its 5.2 MW onshore wind turbine generator – boasting it as “India’s largest”. This accreditation will permit Adani Wind to initiate mass production for international markets.
The testing of the 5.2 MW WTG created by Adani Wind and W2E Wind to Energy GmbH, Germany, was carried out by WindGuard at the Mundra site in Gujarat. The IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Renewable Energy Applications (IECRE) has certified the turbine, confirming its commitment to the highest quality and safety standards.
“We are focused on building a portfolio of high-yield next-generation wind turbines made in India and are well-poised to cater to the global wind energy demand,” said Milind Kulkarni, chief operating officer of Adani Wind.
The 5.2 MW wind turbine manufactured by Adani Wind features a rotor diameter of 160 meters with a swept area of 20,106 square meters and a tip height of 200 meters, making it one of the world’s most powerful onshore wind turbines.
Adani Wind is the wind energy solutions division of Adani New Industries Limited (ANIL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Adani Enterprises Ltd.
