Suzlon bags 50.4-MW project in AP
Renewable energy major Suzlon Group has announced that it has bagged a 50.40-MW wind power project from a leading business house to be executed in Andhra Pradesh.
The project consists of 24 units of S95 90m tubular tower with a rated capacity of 2.1 MW.
Located in the district of Anantapur of Andhra Pradesh, the project is scheduled for completion in March 2017. This order win takes the total current year order portfolio with the business house to 84 MW. Out of this, 33.60 MW was announced earlier as a part of order wins from SMEs.
Suzlon will provide operation and maintenance for a period of 20 years. The project has the potential to provide power to over 27,000 households and reduce 0.10 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum.
J P Chalasani, Group CEO, Suzlon Group, in a statement said, “We continue to collaborate with all stakeholders for India’s sustainable development. We are witnessing increased traction across all customers segments like IPPs, large corporates and PSUs as well as retail.”
“With our pan-India presence and technologically advanced product, Suzlon is best positioned to capitalise on the growing market opportunities in India,” he said.
The S9X 2.1 MW platform features the time tested Doubly Fed Induction Generator technology which is designed to optimally harness available wind resources. It not only delivers higher energy yield, but also offers higher return on investment for customers.
The company has recently forayed into the solar space.
