The wind farm is targeted to be commissioned in a phased manner with full commissioning in the early phase of calendar year 2025. With this latest order, GE’s 2.7-132 wind turbines made in India have received over 3.5 GW+ of orders to-date.

We are thankful to O2 Power for the confidence in our 2.7-132 wind turbine platform and look forward to furthering our partnership with them as they continue to build their renewable energy portfolio. We are also pleased with the continued trust that customers have shown in GE Vernova’s technology portfolio and capability to deliver on-time turbines for large wind farms,” said Deepak Maloo, Regional Sales Leader for GE Vernova’s Onshore Wind business in Asia Pacific.

"The wind portfolio expansion is a crucial aspect in O2 Power's growth strategy. In our endeavor to build our wind energy capabilities consistently, we have been partnering with marquee organisations for turbines and other wind-plant components. Our partnership with GE Vernova for their 2.7-132 wind turbine is a step in that direction. This investment testifies our strong commitment to use best-in-class products for our plants and be an equal and formidable partner in achieving India's energy security mission. With this partnership, we look forward to collaborating with GE Vernova's team and work towards the shared goal of a sustainable future," said Rakesh Garg, Head of Wind and Co-Founder of O2 Power.

GE’s 2.7-132 wind turbine has proven to be the technology of choice for many customers in India due to its industry leading performance at India’s low wind speeds. GE Vernova is on track to add 1.2 GW* in new installs during current fiscal year ending March 2024, taking its cumulative install base to 5 GW* and making it one of the largest wind turbine original equipment manufacturer (OEM) supplier in India. The O2 Power project will leverage GE’s significant local footprint in India with product design primarily at GE’s Technology Center in Bengaluru, blade manufacturing in GE’s plants in Vadodara and assembly at the GE multi-modal manufacturing facility in Pune.
