Suzlon Group, India’s largest renewable energy solutions provider, announced that it has bagged a significantly large order for its new 3 MW series of wind turbines to develop a 300 MW wind power project for Torrent Power Limited. Suzlon will install 100 wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a Hybrid Lattice Tubular (HLT) tower and a rated capacity of 3 MW each. The project is located in Karnataka and is expected to be commissioned in 2025.
This is the sixth and the largest order for the new Suzlon 3 MW series in less than a month and as part of the agreement, Suzlon will supply the wind turbines (equipment supply), provide land and execute the project including erection and commissioning. Suzlon will also provide comprehensive operations and maintenance services post-commissioning.
Girish Tanti, Vice Chairman, Suzlon Group, said, “Suzlon and Torrent have a long association of building several Wind Energy projects over the years. We are delighted to further strengthen this partnership with deployment of our most powerful turbine technology via the new 3 MW series. It is also wonderful to see that leading Indian corporate houses have taken on the mantle of driving India’s renewable energy journey towards achieving our nation’s net-zero targets. We remain committed to partner with India Inc. in their journey to net-zero and building a better world for our future generations.”
JP Chalasani, Chief Executive Officer, Suzlon Group, said,”We are happy to announce our fourth order with the reputed Torrent Power Limited. It is always special when we get repeat orders from esteemed customers which demonstrates their trust in Suzlon and its expertise. This is the largest order for our new 3 MW seriesso far, positioning the product firmly in the market. With our global R&D footprint this product brings together world class technology and customization for Indian wind regimes. The electricity generated from this project will be used to power utilities in several states increasing the reach of renewable energy in the country. Suzlon is committed to serve Indian industries through green renewable power to catalyse the nation’s economic growth while fulfilling our net-zero targets.”
The Suzlon 3 MW Series
The largest renewable energy solutions provider in India, The Suzlon Group is proud to announce its 3 MW series of wind turbines. With the primary objective of increasing generation, reducing the cost of energy, and contributing to an Aatmanirbhar Bharat, this series marks a significant milestone for the company and the country’s wind energy sector.
Suzlon’s 3 MW turbines feature a 144-meter rotor diameter and are designed to unlock low wind sites and deliver improved energy yield suitable for all Indian wind regimes. With local content of up to 85-90% by its serial launch, this series proves Suzlon’s commitment to innovation and self-reliance.
The S144 wind turbine generator is one of the largest in India, extendable up to 3.15 MW, depending on site wind conditions, available at a hub height of 140 meters going up to 160 meters by its serial launch. At 160 meters hub height the S144 will also be India’s tallest wind turbine. Suzlon’s S144 fleet will deliver a remarkable 40-43% higher generation over Suzlon’s current model, the S120 – 2.1 MW wind turbine, showcasing its ability to optimize wind resources at higher altitudes and make low-wind sites viable.
Furthermore, the 3 MW turbine generators feature the time-tested Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology and the SB 70.5 carbon fibre blade engineered and developed by Suzlon. This world-class technology provides the capability to utilize thinner aerodynamic profiles, resulting in excellent performance in low-wind sites, and a significant increase in generation yield per unit of land.
As a leader in the renewable energy sector, Suzlon’s 3 MW series of wind turbines is a testament to the company’s dedication to delivering sustainable and cost-effective renewable energy solutions for the future. We are confident that the 3 MW – S144 technology will contribute significantly to the country’s renewable energy and net-zero targets.
