Indian wind turbine manufacturer Suzlon Energy Ltd has clinched a contract to supply turbines for a 193.2-megawatt (MW) wind power project in the state of Gujarat. The contract was awarded by KP Group, a Gujarat-based power producer and a company active in industrial solar, wind, and hybrid energy.
The agreement entails the delivery of 92 units of Suzlon's S120-2.1 MW turbines, featuring a 140-meter hybrid lattice tubular tower. The installation is slated for the Bharuch district and is part of the Wind-Solar Hybrid and State Transmission Utility (STU) tariff-based scheme aimed at bolstering the contribution of renewable energy in Gujarat, as reported by Suzlon.
In addition to turbine supply, Suzlon's contract encompasses supervision, commissioning, and post-commissioning operation and maintenance services. The comprehensive scope of services underlines Suzlon's commitment to supporting the entire life cycle of the wind power project.
Highlighting the significance of local manufacturing, Suzlon emphasized that each turbine is produced in India, reinforcing the company's dedication to domestic production.
This development aligns with India's ongoing efforts to expand its renewable energy capacity and reduce dependence on conventional power sources. The Bharuch project marks a significant step towards achieving sustainability goals and fostering the integration of wind power within the broader renewable energy landscape in Gujarat.
