Suzlon Group announced its repeat order win of 50.40 MW from a leading power utility. The project consists of 24 units of S97 120m hybrid tower with a rated capacity of 2.1 MW. Located in Kutch, Gujarat, the project will be completed by March 2017.
Suzlon will execute the entire project on a turnkey basis and will also provide operation and maintenance services for an initial period of 14 years through an integrated service package. 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 said, “We are pleased to partner this leading power utility yet again in meeting their commitments of providing sustainable and affordable energy. India is witnessing a paradigm shift in the renewable energy landscape and it is heartening to witness power generation utilities embracing alternative energy to build up a robust sustainable energy architecture.
The S97 series of 2.1 MW WTG feature the time tested Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology which is designed to maximise generation at lower wind sites. It not only delivers higher energy output, but also offers higher return on investment for our customers.”
