Renewable energy company Suzlon has been awarded a contract by Greenko Group to supply wind turbines totalling 105MW for a project in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

Under the contract, Suzlon will supply 50 units of S97 120m², 100kW wind turbine generators (WTGs) with hybrid tower for the wind farm.

The wind power generating facility is scheduled to enter service by January next year.

Greenko is said to be the largest renewable independent power producer (IPP), with more than 1GW of operating assets.

"We are delighted to partner with Greenko … it is a clear indication of the traction in overseas IPPs' engagement with sustainable renewable technologies like wind energy."

Suzlon Group chief sales officer Ishwar Mangal said: "We are delighted to partner with Greenko. It is a clear indication of the traction in overseas IPPs' engagement with sustainable renewable technologies like wind energy.

"The Indian Government's thrust on renewables and its conducive policies have encouraged IPPs to foray in the renewable energy sector. Today, IPPs are integral to our capacity build up in India."

Further details of the project have not been revealed by the company.

Earlier this month, US-based subsidiary Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation (SWECO) has won a service contract extension from EDP Renováveis.

SWECO will continue to operate and maintain the fleet of all 190 units of the S88 2.1MW WTGs, totalling nearly 400MW for one more year.

The turbines are installed across Rattlesnake and Wheatfield in Oregon, Meadow Lake in Indiana and the Kittitas Valley in Washington, US.

SWECO CEO Andy Cukurs said: "This is one of our long-standing customers and we are proud to be partnering with them for deployment of clean energy solutions.

"With more than 2,700MW of installations, making it our second largest region, US will play a pivotal role in our future growth strategy."
