Ingeteam has reached 1 GW of production output within the first year of operations at its production facility in India. The company, which recently expanded this new facility, continues to implement its plans in Indian wind energy sector.
Ingeteam established its new cutting-edge Indian facility in autumn last year in the vicinity of Chennai to satisfy the demand for wind power converters and control cabinets from both local and international OEMs. In response to positive trends in both the domestic and global markets, the 3,500 m² production facility has recently been expanded by 40 per cent to reach 4,900 m². Similarly, Ingeteam has tripled the staff head count to reach 82 employees, and introduced three additional products to its local production range in the past year.
“Agility is at the core of Ingeteam’s production strategy. Our Chennai wind facility has been built on a modular design, which allows us to rapidly ramp production up or down according to ever-changing market conditions. This flexibility plays a big role in ensuring that our production centre remains both highly efficient and cost-effective”, commented Josep García, Plant Director of Ingeteam Chennai.
In 2018, Ingeteam’s technology was deployed on 15 per cent of the newly added wind capacity in India and will reach 1GW of production output by this month.
