Siemens is the largest manufacturer of Wind Electric Generators in India. The company manufactures generators ranging from 200kW up to 1650kW (water cooled design) that are known for their high reliability, sturdy performance, low vibrations, low noise levels and high slip operations. Siemens has been supplying generators in the range of 225kW to 600kW to Vestas RRB since 1992 and till date has manufactured 2,999 generators for Vestas RRB alone.
Mr. Sarvesh Kumar, Dy. Managing Director of Vestas RRB unveiled the 3000th new Wind Electric Generator at a special function arranged at Siemens’ Kalwa facility. Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Vijay Paranjape, Director, Siemens Ltd. said, “In recent years, due to the widening demand-supply gap in Power generation as well as various environmental issues, there is a lot of focus on the Wind Energy sector. The Indian market potential for the wind energy sector alone is currently estimated at 45,000MW, of which less than 20% has been realized till date. It is really heartening to have companies like Vestas RRB, who have come forward to provide the much needed clean and green power not only to India but also to its customers across the globe.”
Commenting on Siemens’ contribution towards the wind energy segment, Mr. Paranjape further stated, “Siemens in India has been associated with the Wind Energy sector for the past 15 years and has been the market leader in Wind Electric Generators ever since. We have leveraged our global Technology and deep understanding of the Indian market to develop new products indigenously for this rapidly growing sector and aspire to offer better value to our customers. This 3000th generator, manufactured for our single client Vestas RRB, reinforces the customer’s trust in Siemens. Considering the total generators supplied till date to Vestas RRB and our other clients, we can now proudly claim to have contributed over 4GW of Wind Energy. This bears testimony to our commitment towards ‘Clean and Green Energy’ for India.”
