Wind energy company Suzlon Today said it has won a 105 Megwatt wind power project from Hyderabad based Axis Energy Group.
Axis Energy Ventures India Private Limited is the flag ship company of the Axis Energy Group and the project is being undertaken by a Special Purpose Vehicle – Axis Wind Farms (Anantapur) Pvt Ltd.
The project consists of 50 units of S111 90m tubular tower with rated capacity of 2.1 MW.
Located in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh, the project is scheduled for completion in two phases; first phase will be completed in March 2017 and the second phase will be completed in June 2017.
Suzlon will also be responsible for operation and maintenance services with dedicated Life cycle asset management services for an initial period of 10 years. The project has the potential to provide power to over 50,000 households and reduce 0.22 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum.
“The order adds to our backlog for the next financial year and also reaffirms the traction for S111 platform. Our continuous endeavour is on bringing down the cost of energy by investing in technologically advanced products and thereby enables renewable energy to transition from alternative to mainstream energy source,” Suzlon Group Chief Executive Officer JP Chalasani said.
Andhra Pradesh state government’s focus on promoting non-conventional sources of energy has catapulted Andhra Pradesh as a forerunner in the development of renewable energy. The state’s single window clearance has helped ease of doing business and boosted investments in the renewable sector.
