Suzlon Group has received a contract from ReNew Wind Power Ventures for a 100.8MW wind farm.
The project is planned to be executed at the Bhesada wind site in Dist Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.
Under the agreement, Suzlon Group will supply 48 units of its S97-120 WTG's and will oversee operations, maintenance and service of the wind site over the contracted period.
Expected to change the dynamics of the wind energy business, the S97-120 WTG design is a combination of lattice and tubular structure designs, making it the tallest wind tower in India.
In addition to boosting optimal available wind resources, the towers will deliver higher energy productivity, which in turn ensures higher ROI to customers.
ReNew Wind Power chairman & CEO Sumant Sinha said, "This deal reinforces our commitment to developing sustainable energy solutions for India."
Suzlon Energy sales & marketing president Ishwar C Mangal said, "This order is indeed a reaffirmation of our capabilities that allow us to offer customised solutions for our customer's in accordance with market conditions."
Suzlon Energy Chairman Tulsi Tanti said that the company aims to make profitable and efficient wind energy accessible within the country.
Tanti said, "Leveraging on our leadership position within the country, we continue to have a strong focus on the Indian market as it offers a favourable renewable energy environment especially now with the new government in place.
"We continue to create innovative and reliable products as with the S97-120m which is specifically made for low wind sites."
