Suzlon Group has been awarded a 100.8 MW contract from ReNew Wind Power, an independent power producer (IPP) based in India.
Suzlon will supply 48 S97-120 M wind turbines, as well as oversee operations, maintenance and service at the Bhesada wind site, located in Dist Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.
Suzlon says the order marks the first time it will deploy the turbine on its newly designed tower with a 120-meter hub height. The tower design is a combination of lattice and tubular structure, making it the tallest wind tower in India, Suzlon notes. The towers are designed to harness the optimal available wind resources and deliver higher energy productivity, which, in turn, ensures higher return on investment to customers.
ReNew Wind Power is no stranger to the turbine manufacturer: A pair of ReNew wind projects are already powered by Suzlon machines.
