Suzlon Group, a global renewable energy solutions provider, says it has secured an order for 50.4 MW of wind power from a leading business house in India, taking the total current year order portfolio with the business house to 84 MW.
According to Suzlon, the project consists of 24 units of S95 90-meter tubular towers with a rated capacity of 2.1 MW. Located in the district of Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh, the project is scheduled for completion in March 2017.
Suzlon says it will provide comprehensive operation and maintenance for a period of 20 years, including dedicated lifecycle asset management services. The company states that the project has the potential to provide power to over 27,000 households and reduce 0.10 million tons of CO2 emissions per year.

We are witnessing increased traction across all customers segments, like IPPs, large corporates and PSUs, as well as retail. Our focus is to bring down the cost of energy by investing in technologically advanced products and, thereby, enable renewable energy to make the move from alternative to mainstream energy.

The S9X 2.1 MW platform features time-tested Doubly Fed Induction Generator technology, which is designed to optimally harness available wind resources. The company says it not only delivers higher energy yield, but also offers higher return on investment for customers.
