India’s vast potential for wind is being realised thanks to recent government targets and increasing investment in the area. As of the end of 2021, India’s total installed wind power capacity was at 40GW. However, a recent assessment indicated a gross wind power potential of 302GW at 100 metres and 695.50GW at 120 metres above sea level. Acting on these insights, the Indian government has set a target of generating 60GW from wind by 2022.
That’s where Sarens’ expertise in the wind sector, as well as its formidable equipment, can provide significant advantages. Associate Vice President of Sarens’ wind business in Asia, Saravanan Kathirvel, shares his thoughts:
What scope of services does Sarens provide to the wind sector in India?
Sarens has the capability to provide end-to-end solutions for wind farm development so that customers feel comfortable with a single point of contact for complete development. Sarens can provide complete transportation of WTG components to the site location; crane services for offloading those components; WTG installation with an installation team; off-loading activity; and so on. In brief, Sarens provides complete wind solutions for customers.
What projects has Sarens undertaken in the region, and what’s next?
Sarens has secured a number of wind industry projects within the first quarter of 2022, with various OEMs and IPPs. Ayana Renewable Power Private Ltd., for example, has entrusted Sarens with a 150MW project with complete TCI scope: transportation, crane, and installation services.
Similarly, Sarens won the PAN India installation contract with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE), which involves supplying an installation team for more than 70 WTGs, with the number expected to increase to 120 WTGs. As a global partner to Siemens Gamesa, Sarens is working closely with our client to complete the installation of 2.2MW platform WTGs. The vision of this relationship is leading to turnkey solutions, with Sarens offering TCI (transport, crane, installation) services for the new generation of wind turbines.
Sarens is expanding our business in this region by leaps and bounds. We have opened up business pipelines across the Asia region while working towards the successful execution of our major projects.
What type of equipment does Sarens make available for wind projects?
We have a CC2800-1 Terex Demag Crane with S7 Wind Kit which is suitable for wind turbine erection. Furthermore, due to the demand for the 650T crawler crane in the Asian market, Sarens is planning to put a CC3800-1 in action in the region.
How does Sarens’ reputation as a multinational company with over 60 years’ experience influence your operations in India?
Sarens is known for crane services all over the world and in India. Our presence in the market as a crown in the heavy lifting industry makes customers comfortable entrusting us with major projects like Ayana Power’s 150MW installation. Sarens’ reputation is recognized across the globe, and this influences the success of our business model of TCI scope. Furthermore, Sarens HQ is providing all the support Sarens Wind needs to expand its presence across Asia, including Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan, Indonesia, and more.
As Arun Savanur, the regional director for South Asia says, “Sarens is the globally acclaimed one-stop project solution provider for all our clients’ wind farm needs.”
And it’s true: the right decision, at the right time, with the right people is the key to our success. We at Sarens are known for this globally.
