Suzlon to develop 3,000 MW wind power in Andhra Pradesh. Suzlon Energy has signed a memorandum of understanding with Andhra Pradesh government to develop wind energy capacity in the state totaling 3,000 MW between 2012-2016.

The wind farm development will create potential investments of up to Rs 18,000 crore. "Under the MOU, Andhra Pradesh government will facilitate Suzlon in obtaining necessary permissions, registrations, approvals and clearances for the development of wind farm plants. Suzlon, in turn, will play the role of a developer and facilitate the channelization of investments into the state through its customers investing in wind energy," the Pune-based company said.

The MOU covers development of new capacity in wind turbines across the state, with development planned in over 5 districts.
