The very popular manufacturer of wind turbines Suzlon Group stated recently that it has now got an order of 50.4 MW from Karnataka. It has to supply around 24 units of the S111 turbines of around 120 meters from the power producer for the project in the state. The company has actually gone on to win a repeat order for 24 units of the S111- 120 meter(hybrid) wind turbine, with the rated capacity of around 2.1 MW.
The firm stated that the project will be seeing the first batch of the new S111 – 120 meter (hybrid) wind turbine generator getting set up on a commercial scale. This project is all set to be finished by the end of June this year, as per the CEO of the firm’s group Mr Chalasani.
He stated that the S111 – 120 meter turbine is actually an innovative product; it will certainly be a kind of game changer in the Indian wind Industry. With the highly cost efficient design as well as top class technology, it will further be reducing the leveled energy cost. The project does have a serious potential to offer power to more than 27K households and also bring down around 1 lakh tonnes of C02 emissions each year.
The new S11X 2.1 (MW) platform actually features DFIG (Doubly Fed Induction Generator) technology. This is basically designed for harnessing the available wind resources in an optimal way. This not only delivers very high energy yield, but also certainly offers a bigger rate of return on investment for all of the customers.
Recently, Suzlon Chief Tulsi Tanti had stated that he sees a very strong and upward growth for the renewable energy sector considering all the factors like business indicators, investor’s interest in the sector as well as the sector’s actual potential. Tulsi had stated that he without a doubt feels that there is a big momentum in this sector in the coming years. The wind energy sector in the country has witnessed a great record installations of nearly 5400 MW in the FY 2017, setting up nearly 60% of growth rate over the previous year’s 3400 MW. With this addition, the total installation of wind power capacity actually went up from 27 GW to 32 GW.
Tulsi Tanti had also made a comment on India’s main vision with regard to energy. He had stated that the Indian Prime Minister Mr. Modi’s goal of getting 60 GW of energy from wind by the year 2022 can most certainly be attained with the momentum this sector has presently got. This is mainly driven by the maturity of the manufacturing base, the supply chain in the country that is really cost competitive and even the availability of the very reliable products that is bringing down the actual cost of energy.
