Tulsi Tanti-led Suzlon Group has won a new order for the development of a 252 MW wind power project from CLP India, one of the largest foreign investors in the Indian power sector.

CLP India has invested over Rs 14,500 crore in Indian market, spread across renewable energy, supercritical coal, and gas-fired generation.

Under the contract, India’s one of the oldest wind turbine maker will install 120 units of S120-140m wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a Hybrid Lattice Tubular (HLT) tower, with rated capacity of 2.1 MW each.

The project has been located in Sidhpur town in the state of Gujarat and is expected to be commissioned by next year.  

Further, the scope of the 252 MW wind energy project includes - supply, foundation, erection and commissioning. Post commissioning of the project, the Pune-based company will also provide comprehensive operation and maintenance (O&M) services.

On winning the order, Ashwani Kumar, CEO of Suzlon Group, said, “we are delighted to partner again with CLP India for their wind energy project in Sidhpur, Gujarat. CLP and Suzlon have enjoyed a long and fruitful association and share a common vision for an energy secure India powered by sustainable and renewable sources of energy. This is the first big order that we have announced post our debt restructuring closure in line with our plans to restart business operations and lead the Indian Wind Energy market from the front.”

He further added, “we are seeing an increased interest from all our stakeholders and customer segments to invest in renewable energy. Suzlon’s expertise in the Indian Wind Energy Market over the last 25 years offers convenience and reliability to customers for setting up wind power projects in India’s varied wind regimes.”

“We are excited about growth opportunities in India, and our shareholders CLP Group and CDPQ share a vision to invest in a low carbon, clean energy portfolio in the country. Our wind energy project in Sidhpur, Gujarat is our largest renewable project at a single site. It is a testimony of our commitment towards India’s renewable goals. We are pleased to partner with Suzlon, given their technologically advanced products, EPC capabilities, operations and maintenance services,” said Rajiv Ranjan Mishra, Managing Director, CLP India.

The S120-140m WTGs feature the time tested Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology that efficiently integrates wind turbines into the utility network, to meet the grid requirements.

The company said that its next generation turbines have been designed to optimally harness wind resources at higher altitudes making low wind sites viable.
