Suzlon Powers Up Uttar Pradesh with 300 MW Wind Project

Major contract to boost renewable energy in the state, powering 247,000 homes and curbing emissions.

Renewables solutions provider Suzlon has secured a major contract to develop a 300 MW wind power project for Apraava Energy. This project will play a significant role in increasing the reach of renewable energy in India, particularly in Uttar Pradesh.

Suzlon will install 100 wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a Hybrid Lattice Tubular (HLT) tower, each with a rated capacity of 3 MW, at the client’s site in Karnataka. The company will also supply wind turbines and supervise the project, including commissioning, and undertake comprehensive operations and maintenance services post-commissioning.

“While the project itself is part of the SECI (tranche XIV) auction, the electricity generated from this project will be used to support Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Ltd (UPPCL) to increase the reach of renewable energy in the country,” said Suzlon Group Chief Executive Officer J P Chalasani.

This project is expected to provide electricity to approximately 247,000 households and curb 975,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually. It marks a continued partnership between Suzlon and Apraava Energy, with Apraava Energy Managing Director Rajiv Ranjan Mishra praising Suzlon’s “expertise, rich experience, and best-in-class indigenous solutions.”

This project is a significant step forward for India’s renewable energy sector and is expected to make a major contribution to the country’s clean energy goals. It is also a testament to Suzlon’s expertise and leadership in the wind power industry.
