Suzlon’s big moves in Australia

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.

  1. An update of the wind energy status in India..

    Tamil Nadu held a domineering position in India’s wind power map, according to statistics released by the ministry of new and renewable energy. As of December 31, 2007, the southern coastal state had a wind power capacity of 3,712 mw accounting for 47 per cent of the total of 7,844 mw. Maharashtra with 1,646 mw came second with an all-India share of 21 per cent. Nearly 70 per cent of India’s total current wind power capacity was added during the 10th Plan period (2002-07).
