Gamesa continues to expand its presence in fast-growing markets, this time in India, where the company has announced that it will invest more than € 60 million through 2012 to build new manufacturing plants.

Gamesa plans to open a turbine blade factory this year, with initial production capacity of 300MW, and will localise production of its G9X-2.0MW turbine in India in 2012. The new factory, in northwest India's Gujarat state, will make blades for the G5X-0.850 kW turbine. Furthermore, in future the facility may produce components for higher capacity machines, such as the G9X-2.0MW. Gamesa intends to open additional manufacturing plants in India in coming years to produce nacelles and towers (via joint ventures) at several locations in Gujarat and Tamil Nadu states. As part of its strategy for cementing its Indian business with footholds in both manufacturing and technology, Gamesa has also inaugurated its first technology centre in the country, in Sholinganullar, in Chennai. Gamesa plans to recruit a total of 100 engineers in 2011 as it conducts research and development (R&D) activities in India, though it may double that number in 2012.
