GE Turbines powering Bhoruka wind farm in Karnataka
Bhoruka Power Corporation’s new wind farm at Yelisurur (Karnataka) – powered by 17 GE 1.5-77 wind turbines – is commissioned and in commercial operation. The project, which has a capacity of 25.5 MW of sustainable, clean energy, supports the Karnataka Government’s renewable energy programme.
“GE is a logical partner for us as we develop wind farms across India,” said S. Chandrasekhar, Managing Director of Bhoruka Power. “Their global execution and technology expertise, combined with their strong India team, were key factors when selecting them for this project.”
Assembled at GE’s multi-modal manufacturing facility in Pune, the wind turbines for the Yelisurur project are engineered to deliver favourable results in India’s low-wind speed regimes. GE is setting up the Pune facility to develop localised products and solutions suited to Indian customers across GE’s various businesses throughout the country.
The wind farm commissioning was completed in August 2012 with GE achieving its installation and commissioning target ahead of schedule. The Bhoruka project, located 70 kilometres from Hubli, is the launch site in India for GE’s 1.5-77 turbines. The units installed at Yelisurur have been generating electricity consistently since their commissioning, outpacing the projected power output. In addition to supplying the wind turbines, GE operates and maintains the wind farm.
