Chinese renewable energy conglomerate Envision Energy has announced it has received an order of 198 MW wind turbines from CleanMax, for a wind-solar hybrid project. CleanMax is Asia's leading C&I renewable energy company.
Envision said that the project is one of the largest hybrid projects developed in India under the Commercial and Industrial power offtake segment, consisting of 198 MW wind and 158 MW solar capacity in Amreli, Gujarat.
Envision informed that 60 units of its EN156-3.3 MW onshore turbines will be supplied for the wind farm. The turbine model is suited for the wind and site conditions of the project.
The nacelles and hubs for the turbines will be manufactured in Pune factory of Envision. Operation and maintenance for the wind turbines shall be carried out by the company for the life of the project and it will be commissioned in a phased manner by March 31, 2023.
As per the official statement, the 60 wind turbines will produce 720 GWh of clean energy annually at 41.5% PLF which is enough to power 250,000 households.
Kuldeep Jain, Founder & Managing Director, CleanMax Enviro Energy Solutions, said, "The hybrid farm will supply green power to 40+ industrial and commercial consumers in the state, contributing immensely to the country's energy transition goals.
