Suzlon has won an order from independent power producer Hero Future Energies for a 31.5 MW wind project in Telangana, India.
Suzlon will supply and install 15 of its S97 hybrid wind turbines, each with a 120-meter hub height and rated capacity of 2.1 MW. The company says the hybrid towers combine both lattice and tubular structures, and the combination gives enhanced tower strength at lower cost. The three-dimensional lattice structure can support heavier weights due to the broad base and reduces the steel requirement, according to Suzlon.
"We are delighted to have signed yet another order for our hybrid towers, with Hero Future Energies," comments Ishwar Mangal, chief sales officer of Suzlon. "Our hybrid tower technology is a great value proposition for the customers, and we are encouraged by the customer response."
