The Suzlon 3 MW series
India’s largest provider of renewable energy solutions, The Suzlon Group, is proud to announce its 3 MW series of wind turbines. With the main objective of increasing generation, reducing the cost of energy and contributing to an Aatmanirbhar Bharat, this series marks a major milestone for the company and the country’s wind energy sector.
Suzlon’s 3 MW turbines have a rotor diameter of 144 meters and are designed to unlock low wind sites and deliver enhanced power yield suitable for all Indian wind regimes. With up to 85-90% local content in its series release, this series demonstrates Suzlon’s commitment to innovation and self-sufficiency.
The S144 wind turbine is one of the largest in India, expandable up to 3.15 MW, depending on site wind conditions, available at a hub height of 140 meters and up to 160 meters in series launch. With a hub height of 160 meters, the S144 will also be the tallest wind turbine in India. Suzlon’s S144 fleet will deliver a remarkable 40-43% higher generation than Suzlon’s current model, the 2.1 MW S120 wind turbine, demonstrating its ability to optimize wind resources at higher altitudes and make sites with low winds are viable.
In addition, the 3 MW turbine generators feature time-proven Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology and the Suzlon-designed and developed SB 70.5 carbon fiber blade. This world-class technology provides the ability to use thinner airfoils, resulting in excellent performance in low-wind sites and a significant increase in generation yield per ground unit.
As a leader in the renewable energy sector, Suzlon’s series of 3 MW wind turbines is a testament to the company’s dedication.
