Watsun Infra Private Limited, a subsidiary of Continuum Wind Energy, has placed a 96 MW order for the second phase of the 150 MW Periyapatti Wind Farm in the state of Tamil Nadu. The project showcases the 2 MW platform’s flexibility by optimising wind park layout to the site’s wind conditions and employing 34 V100-2.0 MW turbines as well as 14 V110-2.0 MW turbines that combined maximise energy production.
The 96 MW takes Vestas’ total order intake in India past 600 MW in 2017: The company’s highest in one year since pioneering the Indian wind energy market in 1986.
The order includes the supply and installation of the turbines, a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution and a 15-year full-scope Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement.

These 48 turbines will add to the 27 previously procured from Vestas and commissioned to build our 150 MW project in Tamil Nadu. We are delighted to contribute in a small way to the transformative program of governments of India and Tamil Nadu to provide electricity to all citizens.”
