INGETEAM OPENS NEW PRODUCTION FACILITY IN INDIA
Ingeteam, headquartered in Spain, has opened a new facility in the vicinity of Chennai to satisfy the demand for wind power converters and control cabinets by both local and international original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with operations in India.
Located in the Tamil Nadu region, Ingeteam’s new 3,500 m² facility is equipped with state-of-the-art production technology. The production plant in India will manufacture electrical components following the same stringent standards and processes as Ingeteam’s other production facilities in Spain, the USA, and Brazil.
The new facility has been specially developed to meet the needs of the Indian market. This cost-effective production center is based on a modular design and can be easily modified. The production lines are extremely agile, so they can quickly be adapted to meet new client requirements. In addition, the floor space availability will enable Ingeteam to expand the facility on demand. Production at the new facility started in August 2018, with first deliveries made in September 2018. Serial production began in October 2018.
“With this new plant, we are able to increase our delivery of reliable and quality products to wind turbine manufacturers in India’s extremely competitive market. The decision to manufacture locally was marked by the potential of the Indian market, by its protectionism and by the high potential of its people,” said Ana Goyen, Director of Ingeteam Wind Energy.
