GE Energy is considering to focus on localise the components of wind turbine for the Indian Wind Energy sector for its 1.5 MW and 1.6 MW ratings.
According to Mr Banmali Agrawala, President & CEO, GE Energy, “The company will be launching products of larger capacities to capture low wind speeds as prevalent in India. The products will be coming out in a year’s time and have been developed here. Also, the company is seeing interest in these localised products from other emerging markets as well. GE at present makes wind turbines of 1.5 MW and 1.6 MW capacities.”
Going forward, apart from manufacturing products, GE Energy would be open to providing support to customers in the development phase of the project. Support would be in things like financial structuring or helping with development model and also installation, transportation or commissioning of projects.
