Indian Wind Energy Firm Eyes Burma, Maldives
6 July 2012
Gamesa India, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Spain’s Gamesa Group, is expanding its wind turbine business to Burma and the Maldives, according to The Hindu newspaper. The company’s chairman and managing director, Ramesh Kymal, said work is still in an exploratory phase in Burma, but the country is expected to become a major wind-power market because of its high wind speeds. Gamesa currently has an installed capacity of 800 MW of wind power in India and has three projects totaling 40 MW in Sri Lanka. Its projects in the Maldives will produce 100-150 MW.
