GE Vernova selected by Amplus Solar for its first onshore wind project in India

GE Vernova will supply 2.7-132 onshore wind turbines for Amplus Solar’s 108 MW wind power project

GE Vernova has been selected by Amplus Solar as the onshore wind turbine supplier for its first wind farm project in Tamil Nadu, India.

GE Vernova will supply and commission 40 units of its 2.7-132 onshore wind turbines for this 108 MW wind power project. Amplus Solar’s wind farm will be commissioned by August 2024 and will provide accessible, affordable, and reliable green energy to local businesses and consumers.

GE Vernova’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. The project will leverage GE’s significant local footprint in India with product design primarily at GE’s Technology Center in Bengaluru, turbines assembled at GE’s manufacturing facility in Pune and blades manufactured at LM Wind Power’s plant in Vadodara.

GE Vernova’s Gas Power business and Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) announced the continuation of their long-term cooperation with the fourth extension of the Technical Assistance and License Agreement (TALA), including scope for the engineering and manufacturing of heavy-duty gas turbines in India.

The signing of the agreement is an extension of the collaboration between the two power sector industrial companies that started in July 1986.

“With the new agreement, we will also be able to offer hybrid powering solutions by using GE’s aero-derivative gas turbine technology and support the growth of renewable energy in India.” said Jai Prakash Srivastava, Director (Engineering, Research & Development) & Director (Finance – Addl. Charge), BHEL.


Leaning into quality: GE Vernova’s Onshore Wind business is sharpening its focus for a more powerful future

GE Vernova’s Onshore wind business’ Major Components Exchange department recently changed its name to Major Components Upgrades in a nod to its new commitment – Any new part placed on an existing turbine had to be a higher-quality component than the one it was replacing.

“My job is making sure we’re ‘injecting medicine,’ not just putting a Band-Aid on a problem,” says Johanna Wellington, leader of the Major Components Upgrades department. “Every time we touch a turbine, the goal is to make it better,” she adds.

“Every employee, starting with those who design and engineer our products, now underwrites their decisions by signing off on them, every step of the way.” says Tom Fischetti, CTO and engineering leader. People will still make mistakes, he adds. “But the process assures that we’re taking the time to review our work and make sure we’ve considered the right assumptions and analyses with regard to safety, quality, and everything else before we move it forward.”
