Gamesa India has emerged the top wind turbine seller in India in the year 2015-16, beating Suzlon and also crossing the 1 GW-mark for the first time.

The Indian subsidiary of the Spanish wind major of the same name, sold wind turbines worth 1,003 MW in the year, up from 657 MW in the previous year, even as the traditional market leader, Suzlon, more than doubled its sales to 900 MW. But the fastest growth was recorded by Inox Wind, whose sales increased to 790 MW from 272 MW in 2014-15 (see table).

Incidentally, Gamesa India is also the largest contributor to Gamesa's global sales, accounting for 29 per cent of sales. In calendar year 2015, Gamesa's global order intake was 3,883 MW, up 17 per cent, with India accounting for a major share.

Gamesa India's Chairman and Managing Director, Ramesh Kymal, attributed the company's success to "favourable business climate" in India.
