Wind energy companies ReGen Powertech and Kenersys India, on Thursday, unveiled new products for the emerging multi-megawatt turbine marketat the Wind Power India 2012 event here.

Announcing the launch of Vensys 87 (V-87), a 1.5 MW turbine, Managing Director of ReGen Powertech Pvt. Ltd., Madhusudan Khemka, said it was the third turbine from the company in the last four years. These had been developed in collaboration with Vensys Energy AG of Germany.

V-87 would deliver a 15 per cent increase in annual energy production over V-77, the company’s first product, and 5-7 per cent more annual energy production over V-82 in the 85-metre configuration.

The new turbine, for which the company has pre-launch orders of Rs.1,800 crore for 279 MW, was priced marginally higher than the earlier products, he said.

The company, which has a manufacturing facility in Andhra Pradesh, is setting up a plant in Udaipur.

The total investment, including on the blade plant for which ReGen is likely to have technology tie-up with LM Wind Power, would be Rs.450 crore.

Kenersys India

Kenersys India introduced two turbines for the Indian market — K98 1.8 MW and K120 2.3 MW. Both these would be commercialised by early 2014, its Chief Executive Officer Kailash Tarachandani said. The new products were designed keeping in mind low wind conditions, land challenges and grid issues. The company has manufacturing facilities in Baramati and in Germany. In 2011-12, the company installed 40 MW projects and this year was expecting to touch 70-80 MW.

ExxonMobil

On Wednesday, senior executives of ExxonMobil Lubricants highlighted the range of products of the company that contributed to improving the performance of the turbines and reducing the need for maintenance.

One of the features was the extended drain interval of the lubricants, according to the Asia Pacific Mobil SHC Brand Manager Shankar Karnik and ExxonMobil Lubricants Private Ltd General Manager Rupinder Paintal.

The company, they said, had products meeting the requirements of various wind turbines.
