Suzlon says it installed and commissioned more than 350 MW of wind energy in Brazil over the 16-month period ending November 2014.
This combined capacity, 309 MW of which was added in calendar-year 2014, includes three projects located in the high-wind states of Rio Grande do Norte and Ceara. The installations comprise 150 of Suzlon's S95 and S97 turbines and 18 units of S88 turbines – all with a rated capacity of 2.1 MW.
‘We remain focused on high growth and emerging markets, and Brazil is a key geography of our growth strategy,’ says Tulsi R. Tanti, the company's chairman. "Suzlon is committed to contribute to Brazil's energy basket by reducing its carbon footprint and bridging the country's power needs."
Suzlon entered the Brazilian market in 2008 and has since created a cumulative installed capacity of approximately 750 MW. The earlier projects, totaling about 400 MW, are also located in the state of Ceara.
