Suzlon has won two contracts to supply wind turbines totalling 240MW for projects in the Indian states of Gujarat and Rajasthan.

The company will supply 56 pieces of 120m-tall S97 hybrid tower and 38 pieces of 90m-tall S97 tubular tower with rated capacity of 2.1MW each for Gujarat.

The S97 series of 2.1MW wind turbine generators features the doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) technology, which is designed to maximise generation at lower wind sites.

The S97 120m is the world’s tallest all-steel hybrid tower with both, lattice and tubular structures. It has been designed domestically to harness the enhanced availability of wind resources at higher altitudes.

"The project will provide electricity to nearly 100,000 households and cut around 42,000t of CO2 emissions per year."

Suzlon Energy chief sales officer Ishwar Mangal said: "The order win from the leading power utility underscores our commitment and focus on the domestic market. The customer faith and trust in our technology, new products and end-to-end capabilities is truly encouraging.

"We believe the synergy in our common resolve towards India’s energy security brought us together to partner for this project. We are witnessing interest from power utilities to invest in renewable energy not only to meet their RPO requirements, but to also contribute towards a greener tomorrow."

The project will be commissioned in phases with complete execution scheduled by March 2017.

Once operational, the project will provide electricity to nearly 100,000 households and cut around 42,000t of CO2 emissions per year.

The company has built one of Asia’s largest wind parks in Kutch, Gujarat, and has contributed nearly 1,742MW of wind energy installations across the state.

As part of a separate order from Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), Suzlon will supply turbines for a 48.30MW wind project in Rajasthan.

IOCL has contracted Suzlon to supply 11 units of S97 120m hybrid tower and 12 units of S97 90m tubular tower with rated capacity of 2.1MW each.
