Suzlon Group, the world’s fifth largest wind turbine manufacturer, today surpassed yet another milestone by expanding the capacity of Asia’s largest wind farm at Kutch, Gujarat to 1100 MW. With this expansion, Suzlon now generates 1800 MW in Gujarat thus accounting for 20% of Suzlon’s total pan-India capacity of over 8250 MW.
Commemorating this landmark occasion, the company unveiled S97 120m-World’stallest hybrid tower at the hands of chief minister of Gujarat, Anandiben Patel.
The S97 120m is Worlds’ tallest Hybrid Tower modeldesigned indigenously to harness the wind energy across low wind sites. It is installed at Jamanwada, Kutch in Gujarat and has successfully generated 1500+ kWhin its pilot stage of 3 months.
Gujarat has championed the cause of generating power through renewable sources and has adopted pioneering technologies in Wind, solar and other renewable resources.
Suzlon has played an integral part in enhancing Gujarat’s renewable energy portfolio. Suzlon took up the challenge put forth by Narendra Modi of establishing 2000 MW wind energy in Gujarat and Suzlon has already delivered 1080 MW in Kutch. We will continue to forge alliances with private players to harness the full potential of renewable energy in Gujarat.
Tulsi Tanti, CMD, Suzlon Energy, said, ”The S97 120 m hybrid tower, a potential game changer, is the result of our continued focus to invest in next generation technologies that will provide energy efficient solutions thus ensuring higher yields to our customers. As the world is waking up and implementing measures to combat climate change, the contribution of wind energy in the energy architecture mix across the world has increased manifold. Governments are now pivoting their attention on renewables to provide the much needed energy security for their respective countries.”
