GE Vernova has secured an order from O2 Power Private Limited to supply, install, and commission 36 units of its workhorse 2.7-132 onshore wind turbines for O2 Power's 97 MW wind power project in Maharashtra, India.

The agreement will not only help supply renewable energy to various industries and commercial establishments in India but also contribute towards the country’s target of 500 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030. 

The wind farm is expected to be commissioned in a phased manner with completion set for early 2025. 

The O2 Power project’s product design will be conducted at GE’s Technology Center in Bengaluru, blade manufacturing in GE’s plants in Vadodara, and assembly at the GE multi-modal manufacturing facility in Pune.

“This investment testifies to our strong commitment to use best-in-class products for our plants and be an equal and formidable partner in achieving India's energy security mission,” said Rakesh Garg, Head of Wind and Co-Founder of O2 Power.

GE Vernova plans to add 1.2 GW in new installs during 2024 to reach a cumulative install base of 5 GW.
