Adani Group Achieves Certification for India’s Largest Wind Turbine Installation

The Adani Group, famous for innovative efforts on sustainable energy and infrastructure projects, recently made news in the field of renewable energy. The conglomerate has certified India’s most significant wind turbine installation, a fantastic accomplishment. This demonstrates the Group’s persistent dedication to renewable energy and marks a significant milestone in India’s shift to more sustainable and environmentally friendly electricity sources.

Adani Wind, the wind energy solutions division of Adani New Industries Limited (ANIL), announced on September 13 that its 5.2 MW Wind Turbine Generator (WTG), the largest in India, had achieved type certification from WindGuard GmbH.

With this approval, Adani Wind can begin series production for worldwide markets. This certification certifies that Adani Wind’s 5.2 MW WTG meets the most demanding quality and safety standards under the IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Renewable Energy Applications, IECRE, gaining international recognition.

This certification confirms that Adani WTG complies with the internationally recognized IEC 61400 series standards and regulations controlling design, testing, and production. WindGuard tested the WTG prototype, which has been installed at Mundra, Gujarat.

With the accreditation of India’s largest wind turbine installation, the Adani Group’s quest for sustainable energy solutions has achieved a new peak. This project demonstrates the conglomerate’s ambitions for a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future, in line with the worldwide transition toward renewable energy sources.

Speaking on occasion, Vneet Jaain, Director, Adani New Industries Limited, stated, “The type certificate reaffirms the quality and robustness of our 5.2 MW WTG platform built to bring down the levelized cost of energy (LCOE). The certification boosts our endeavour to make India the global renewable equipment manufacturing hub. India has emerged as a trusted partner as economies prioritize building efficient and resilient global supply chains.”

“We are focused on building a portfolio of high-yield next-generation wind turbines made in India and are well-poised to cater to the global wind energy demand,” he added.

Milind Kulkarni, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Adani Wind, said that the certification is a testament to their research and development efforts focused on increasing the annual energy production (AEP) of wind power plants and enhancing customer profitability. They thanked their staff for their commitment and constant focus on using technology to make power accessible, dependable and sustainable for everyone.

With a significant rotor diameter of 160 meters, a swept area of 20,106 square meters and a tip height of 200 meters, Adani Wind’s 5.2 MW wind turbine is one of the most potent onshore wind turbines in the world. Collaboration between Adani Wind and W2E Wind to Energy GmbH, Germany, led to the creation of the 5.2 MW WTG.

Adani Wind, a branch of Adani New Industries Limited (ANIL), is committed to easing the transition to renewable energy on a global scale.
