Suzlon Group has clinched a significant order for the development of a 300 MW wind power project from Apraava Energy Private Limited. The project, to be located in the state of Karnataka, will see the installation of 100 wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a Hybrid Lattice Tubular (HLT) tower, each boasting a rated capacity of 3 MW.
This order pertains to Suzlon's larger-rated 3 MW S144-140m turbines from the 3 MW product series. Under the terms of the agreement, Suzlon will not only supply the wind turbines but also oversee the project, including the commissioning process. Furthermore, Suzlon will provide comprehensive operations and maintenance services post-commissioning.
Girish Tanti, Vice Chairman of Suzlon Group, expressed delight at partnering again with Apraava Energy, a long-term and repeat customer. Tanti highlighted the company's commitment to supporting reputed Renewable Energy firms in achieving their green energy objectives amid India's escalating renewable energy ambitions.
JP Chalasani, CEO of Suzlon Group, expressed gratitude for Apraava Energy's continued trust and emphasized the project's significance in contributing to India's energy transition goals. The electricity generated from the project, part of the SECI auction, will support Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Ltd. (UPPCL) in expanding renewable energy reach in the country.
Rajiv Ranjan Mishra, Managing Director of Apraava Energy, underscored the company's commitment to India's energy transition goals and expressed pleasure in partnering with Suzlon for the Karnataka wind project.
Suzlon's turbines incorporate Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology, efficiently integrating wind turbines into the utility network to meet grid requirements. The company's ongoing research and development efforts focus on enhancing turbine performance, extracting more energy from low-wind sites, and reducing the overall cost of energy.
