Suzlon commissions 340MW solar projects across India

CTBR Staff Writer Published 16 March 2018

Suzlon Group has commissioned three solar projects totalling 340MW across the three states in India.

The three projects are of various capacities with 210MW farm located in Telangana, 60MW in Rajasthan and 70MW in Maharashtra.

As per the company, these three projects have been executed over a period of time and were completed in the last quarter of this financial year.

The company will also provide operation and maintenance (O&M) services to the three solar farms for a period of 25 years.

Suzlon had won the construction rights for the three projects through competitive bidding in Telangana, National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) bid in Rajasthan and Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) bid in Maharasthra.

The company has executed the projects by forming joint ventures and/ or special purpose vehicles (SPVs) with its partners.

Suzlon Group CEO J.P. Chalasani said: “We have delivered the entire 340 MW solar project on turnkey basis. Our focus on solar will continue to be through Wind-Solar hybrid projects, which will lead to better utilization of grid, due to complementary generation profile. It will also save on duplication of costs such as land and evacuation infrastructure.

“We have an edge due to our existing large land bank, technologically advanced products and nationwide O&M strength. With the positive change in the Indian renewable energy landscape, we are confident that the volumes will witness significant growth across all sources of clean energy. Suzlon endeavors to bring down the cost of energy and provide clean and affordable energy for all.”

For the wind energy sector, the company has recently commissioned its new product, the S128, its largest wind turbine generator in India. The turbine’s hub height is claimed to be 140m with the rotor blades measuring 63m each. The rotor diameter is 128m and it is available in the ranges of 2.6MW to 2.8MW.
