Suzlon Group, India’s largest renewable energy solutions provider, announced that it has crossed the 20GW wind energy installations milestone through 12,647 wind turbines installed across 17 countries spanning six continents solidifying Suzlon’s position as a significant player in the global wind energy landscape.
As India’s leading and pioneering Indian renewable company Suzlon has built the Indian wind energy sector since 1995 in line with the vision of its much-celebrated late Founder and Chairman, Shri Tulsi Tanti.
According to Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), India currently has a total renewable energy capacity of 168.96 GW (as on 28th February 2023) with about 82 GW at various stages of implementation and about 41 GW under tendering stage. This includes 64.38 GW Solar Power, 51.79 GW Hydro Power, 42.02 GW Wind Power and 10.77 GW Bio Power.
Girish Tanti, Vice Chairman, Suzlon Group, said, “Crossing the 20GW mark is a testament to Suzlon’s dedication and expertise in the renewable energy industry. I would like to thank the Government of India for their visionary policy framework and our diverse customer base of over 1,900 customers and vendor partners for their unflinching support without which this achievement would not be possible. With 5.9 GW of Indian Wind Turbines installed across the globe, Suzlon’s 20 GW is a story of taking India to the world.”
Suzlon Group earlier announced about the significantly large orders it secured for its 3 MW series of wind turbines from Serentica Renewables and Torrent Power Limited.
Serentica Renewables is a decarbonization platform that seeks to accelerate the energy transition for energy-intensive industries. Suzlon will install 68 wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a Hybrid Lattice Tubular (HLT) tower and a rated capacity of 3 MW each for Serentica’s 204 MW wind power project coming up at Koppal in Karnataka. The project is expected to commission by early 2024. As part of the agreement, Suzlon will supply the wind turbines (equipment supply) and execute the project including erection and commissioning. Suzlon will also provide comprehensive operation and maintenance services post commissioning.
Suzlon will install 100 wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a Hybrid Lattice Tubular (HLT) tower and a rated capacity of 3 MW each for Torrent Power Limited’s 300 MW project which is located in Karnataka and is expected to be commissioned in 2025. As part of the agreement, Suzlon will supply the wind turbines (equipment supply), provide land and execute the project including erection and commissioning. Suzlon will also provide comprehensive operations and maintenance services post-commissioning.
