Suzlon To Supply 175 Wind Turbines to Indian Conglomerate, Aditya Birla Group

Suzlon Group, India’s largest renewable energy solutions provider, announced a new order win for the development of 551.25 MW wind power project for the Aditya Birla Group, a Global Indian Conglomerate.

Suzlon will install 175 wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a Hybrid Lattice Tubular (HLT) tower and a rated capacity of 3.15 MW each at sites in the Barmer district in Rajasthan and Bhuj district in Gujarat. This order is for the company’s larger rated 3.15 MW, S144-140m turbines from the 3 MW product series.

As part of the agreement, Suzlon will supply the wind turbines (equipment supply) and execute the project, including erection and commissioning, in Rajasthan, while they will supply, supervise, and commission the project in Gujarat. Suzlon will also undertake comprehensive operations and maintenance services post- commissioning at both the sites.

Suzlon turbines 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 said its R&D efforts are continuously geared towards increasing turbine performance, harnessing more energy from low wind sites, and lowering the cost of energy.

Girish Tanti, Vice Chairman, Suzlon Group, said: “We are delighted to partner once again with the Aditya Birla Group for this order. We applaud ABG’s visionary approach to power operations across its group companies with renewable energy and set an example for India Inc. Suzlon’s comprehensive and proven product portfolio, customised for the Indian wind regime, will be instrumental in ramping up India’s renewable energy capacities in line with our national targets while powering the Indian industry with green energy.”
