Wind turbine maker Suzlon Group has bagged an over 50 MW wind power project in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh.
Suzlon, a leading global renewable energy solutions provider, today announced winning this order from a “leading business house”.
“The project consists of 24 units of S95 90m tubular tower with rated capacity of 2.1 MW,” the company said in a BSE filing today.
Located at Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh, the project is scheduled for completion in March 2017. This order win takes the current year’s total order portfolio with the business house to 84 MW, out of which 33.60 MW was announced earlier as a part of order wins from SMEs, it said.
Suzlon will provide comprehensive operation and maintenance for a period of 20 years, and it includes dedicated life cycle asset management services to the project. The project has potential to provide power to over 27,000 households and reduce 0.10 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum.
“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 PSU’s as well as retail.
“Our focus is to bring down the cost of energy by investing in technologically advanced products and thereby enable renewable energy to make the move from alternative to mainstream energy,” Suzlon Group Group CEO J P Chalasani said.
“Suzlon’s competitive edge is the end-to-end solutions approach and we will continue to offer turnkey solutions for our customers. With our pan-India presence and technologically advanced product, Suzlon is best positioned to capitalise on the growing market opportunities in India,” he added.
