Suzlon Group has signed a binding term sheet and received advance payment for the execution of a 197.4 MW turbine order with an independent power producer (IPP) in India.
Once due diligence is completed and construction contracts are inked, Suzlon will supply, install and commission 47 units of the S97-120M hybrid tower and 47 units of the S111-90M tubular tower, each with a rated capacity of 2.1 MW, for a project in the Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh. Suzlon says these turbines are part of its next-generation product suite designed to unlock the potential of low-wind sites.
The turbine manufacturer will offer operations and maintenance services for 12 years through an integrated service package. The project is scheduled to be commissioned by February 2017.
Suzlon says it recently commissioned a 50.4 MW wind power project in India for the same customer.
