Suzlon begins operations at 100.8MW wind power plant in India

CTBR Staff Writer Published 29 September 2015

Suzlon has commenced operations at the 100.8MW wind power plant in the Indian state of Rajasthan for wind power developer CLP India.

With the commissioning of this project, CLP India's installed wind generation capacity has increased to 874.2MW in the country.

The project is a part of the country's largest wind park with a potential total capacity of 1500MW in Jaisalmer.

The wind farm includes 48 WTG's of Suzlon's S97- 2.1 MW wind turbines with doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) technology.

Suzlon claims that the S9X series product portfolio is designed to optimally harness the available wind resources to deliver higher energy and productivity.

The wind power facility is expected to generate clean electricity that will be enough to power over 50,000 homes annually, while reducing CO2 emissions.

CLP India Renewables business development director Mahesh Makhija said: "Wind Energy is an integral part of CLP India's business strategy and is expected to continue making a vital contribution not only to CLP's growth plans for India but also to its commitment to reducing its CO2 emissions."

Suzlon has been awarded an integrated service package contract to provide operations and maintenance at the project for 20 years.

Earlier this month, Suzlon won new wind turbine supply contracts for several projects in five Indian states.

The company has agreed with unnamed small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) and public sector undertaking (PSU) customers to deliver 50 wind turbine generators of its 2.1MW S9X product suite.
