Suzlon gets order for 47 wind turbines from Mytrah Energy

Wind turbine manufacturer Suzlon on Monday said it will supply 47 wind turbines, each of 2.1 MW capacity, for Mytrah Energy’s 98.7 MW wind power project in Telangana.

“Suzlon will supply 47 ‘S97’ 120 metre hybrid tower turbines of 2.1 MW capacity each for 98.7 MW project to Mytrah at Nazeerabad in Telangana,” the company said in a statement.

The order is part of the business partnership agreement (BPA) signed between the two companies in May 2010 to purchase 1,000 MW of win turbines from Suzlon.

Suzlon has already commissioned 310 MW wind energy project for Mytrah so far and 205 MW is under execution in Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh.

“Suzlon has been our partner of choice for over five years. This project is one of 300 MW that we are currently constructing and will take our capacity past 840 MW in 2016,” Mytrah Energy chairman and CEO Ravi Kailas said.

Commenting on the order, Suzlon chairman Tulsi Tanti said, “Indian renewable sector is witnessing the positive winds of change and Suzlon will continue to be the catalyst of wind energy in India.”

“We are well positioned to drive growth in this sector and will continue to focus our R&D efforts to bring down the cost of energy.”

He further said that the company’s robust order book, positive business outlook and conducive policy framework in India gives it immense confidence to deliver on its goals.

The S97 120m is the world’s tallest hybrid tower designed to harness the wind energy across low wind sites. It is a combination of lattice and tubular structure which ensures higher yield and increased power output of over 12-14 per cent at 90 meter tower.
