Suzlon is the biggest wind farm manufacturer in India and one of the biggest in the world. Over the years they have grown from strength to strength. Interestingly, my cousin works as a Intern for Suzlon in the US and he sent me some info about their new plant in South Australia.
Last year Suzlon signed two contracts.
The contract with RPV calls for delivery of 63 units of Suzlon S88 – 2.1 MW wind turbine, translating to 132 MW of capacity. The project, named ‘Capital Wind Farm,’ will come up in New South Wales, approximately 50 kilometers (31 miles) north of Canberra. The contract includes full turnkey delivery, including a 330 kV electrical substation and power line works, and is scheduled for completion in the first half of 2009.
The second contract, a repeat from AGL Energy, calls for the delivery of 34 units of Suzlon’s S88 turbines, translating to 71.4 MW of capacity.
The AGL plant was inagurated by the Premier Mike Rann on 13th June, 2008. This is a company to watch in this sphere.
