Suzlon Group, a global renewable energy solution provider, says it has won a repeat order from an independent power producer (IPP) for a 58.80 MW capacity wind power project in the Indian district of Dewas, in Madhya Pradesh, that is capable of powering approximately 32,000 households per year.
According to Suzlon, the project comprises 28 units of S97-120-meter hybrid towers with a rated capacity of 2.1 MW each. Suzlon will be responsible for the entire project lifecycle, which includes wind turbine supply, construction and commissioning, as well as operations, maintenance and services for 12 years.
The project is scheduled for completion by March 2017.
Suzlon states that the S97-120-meter hybrid tower is a combination of the lattice and tubular towers wind turbine generator with increased stability and reduced cost. It enables higher generation from low-wind sites and yields higher returns on investment to customers, the company says.
“The order win is a testament of the faith and confidence reposed by customers in Suzlon’s technology, execution and lifecycle asset management capabilities,” says J.P. Chalasani, Suzlon Group’s CEO, speaking on the occasion.
“The Indian renewable industry is witnessing significant momentum and surge in demand supported by positive policy actions and government support,” he adds. “Over two decades of experience, pan-India presence, robust technology, innovative and reliable products, and massive service capabilities gives us the confidence to further enhance our market share in India.”
