The new machine will be the highest capacity wind turbine in India will be manufactured at its Indian plant in Tamil Nadu early 2021.

The company is targeting the auction market with its new machine.

Simply put, auction market in the wind power segment means, wind power projects are auctioned and the player who quotes the lowest tariff per unit is awarded the project.

The new model has been upgraded with the 145-metre rotor of the Siemens Gamesa 4 MW platform due to its modularity.

This rotor is already under production in India.

The SG 3.4-145 stands 127.5m tall, with a blade-tip height of 200m.

According to Navin Dewaji, Siemens Gamesa CEO for India, the new machine is an important element in the company's strategy and it is entering the Indian market at the right time.

In India, Siemens Gamesa has two blade factories in Nellore in Andhra Pradesh, and Halol in Gujarat, a nacelle factory in Mamandur in Tamil Nadu and an operations and maintenance centre near Chennai. The company also has an R&D centre in Bangalore where it employs over 100 engineers.
