The wind farm in Karnataka state in the south-west is Acciona Energy’s third wind farm in India, and will raise the company’s wind energy capacity in the country to 85.8 MW. Construction work on this project began in October 2010, and it will go into operation in 2011. The wind farm will have 34 turbines with a capacity of 1,650 kW each.

The financing is structured through the project finance modality for a sum of 2,000 million rupees (33.3 million €), which represents around 60 % of the total investment in the project. The amortization period has been set at 14 years, one of the longest ever granted in India for project finance in the wind power sector.

Sometimes one and one add up to more than the mere addition of numbers. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of rotor blades is a complex and demanding task that requires very good hardware as well as professional data analysis in order to be able to make really precise and early statements about structural damage to the rotor blade. For this reason, two specialists have now joined forces to offer wind farm operators the best possible combination of forces on the market.
