CTBR Staff Writer Published 12 October 2015

Suzlon has commissioned a 50.40MW wind power project for Ostro Energy in the Indian state of Rajasthan.

The turnkey project comprises 24 units of Suzlon S97- 2.1MW wind turbine generators with the time tested doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) technology that is designed to optimally harness the available wind resources.

This facility forms a part of Suzlon's Jaisalmer wind park, which is said to be the largest wind park in the country with a cumulative capacity of over 1300MW.

Ostro Energy CEO Ranjit Gupta, CEO, Ostro Energy said, "The successful commissioning of our 50.40 MW Tejuva wind project signals our ambitious expansion plans in the renewable sector and is an important first milestone in Ostro's journey to 800 MW of wind capacity.

"We see wind as a highly viable investment option with its techno-economic maturity and green credentials. Suzlon has been our partner of choice in our first foray into wind energy, given its time tested technological expertise and project execution capabilities."

Suzlon, which was responsible for the development, construction and commissioning of the project, will provide operations and maintenance services of the project for 12 years.

Suzlon Energy chief sales officer Ishwar Mangal, Chief Sales Officer, Suzlon Energy said, "Clean energy solutions is fast becoming critical to the energy supply equation in India. We are delighted to extend India's wind energy footprint, drawing on our deep understanding of the energy sector.

"The successful commissioning of this project is a testament of Suzlon's ever evolving technology and project execution prowess. This success demonstrates our strength in partnering with IPPs towards capacity building of sustainable energy infrastructure."

In September this year, Suzlon commenced operations at the 100.8MW wind power plant in Rajasthan for wind power developer CLP India.
