Suzlon Group has announced its new order win for development of a 252 MW wind power project from CLP India.
Suzlon will install 120 units of S120-140m wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a Hybrid Lattice Tubular (HLT) tower, with rated capacity of 2.1 MW each.
The project is located in Sidhpur, Gujarat and is expected to be commissioned in 2022.
Suzlon will execute the project with a scope of supply, foundation, erection and commissioning. Suzlon will also provide comprehensive operation and maintenance services post commissioning.
The S120-140m WTGs feature the time tested Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology that efficiently integrates wind turbines into the utility network, to meet the grid requirements.
Suzlon’s next generation turbines are designed to optimally harness wind resources at higher altitudes making low wind sites viable.
Speaking on the order win, Ashwani Kumar, CEO, Suzlon Group said, “We are delighted to partner again with CLP India for their Wind Energy Project in Sidhpur, Gujarat. CLP and Suzlon have enjoyed a long and fruitful association and share a common vision for an energy secure India powered by sustainable and renewable sources of energy. This is the first big order that we have announced post our debt restructuring closure in line with our plans to restart business operations and lead the Indian Wind Energy market from the front. We are seeing an increased interest from all our stakeholders and customer segments to invest in renewable energy. Suzlon’s expertise in the Indian Wind Energy Market over the last 25 years offers convenience and reliability to customers for setting up wind power projects in India’s varied wind regimes.”
