Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind #energy, has achieved a fresh milestone in its growth strategy for #india by building a new blade factory in the town of Nellore, in Andra Pradesh, one of the country's fastest­growing wind markets.

With enough capacity to manufacture 500 MW a year, the facility has been configured to produce the G114­2.0 MW class S model, a turbine custom­designed for wind conditions in #india. The company plans to inaugurate the factory, which will employ 400 people, in September 2016.

"The start­up of this new facility evidences our industrial pledge in #india and our commitment to developing the country's wind power and broader manufacturing infrastructure. By opening our third factory, we are stepping up our operations in a priority region for #gamesa, while generating wealth via job creation and purchases from local suppliers", said Ramesh Kymal, Gamesa's CEO in #india.
