Suzlon Group, India's preeminent provider of renewable energy solutions, has recently achieved a series of significant victories with its cutting-edge 3 MW wind turbines. The company has successfully secured several large orders, solidifying its position as a leader in the industry. These achievements underscore Suzlon's commitment to innovation and self-reliance in the pursuit of sustainable energy solutions.
One noteworthy order comes from Torrent Power Limited, with Suzlon set to develop a 300 MW wind power project in Karnataka. This project will see the installation of 100 wind turbine generators (WTGs) equipped with Hybrid Lattice Tubular (HLT) towers, boasting a remarkable rated capacity of 3 MW each. The commissioning of this project is anticipated to take place in 2025, contributing significantly to India's renewable energy capacity.
Another notable accomplishment is Suzlon's collaboration with Serentica Renewables, a decarbonization platform dedicated to accelerating the energy transition for energy-intensive industries. Suzlon will install 68 wind turbine generators at Serentica's 204 MW wind power project in Koppal, Karnataka. With the use of Hybrid Lattice Tubular towers and a rated capacity of 3 MW each, this project is expected to be commissioned by early 2024, marking another milestone in Suzlon's pursuit of sustainable energy solutions.
In a span of just one month, Suzlon secured yet another substantial order for a 69 MW wind power project for the Indian subsidiary of a leading Nordic Energy Company. This project, located in Karnataka, will witness the installation of 23 wind turbine generators equipped with Hybrid Lattice Tubular towers and a rated capacity of 3 MW each. The commissioning of this project is scheduled for 2024, further solidifying Suzlon's commitment to providing reliable renewable energy solutions.
Additionally, Suzlon will develop a 25.2 MW wind power project for Sri Kumaraswamy Mineral Exports Pvt. Ltd. (SKMEPL). Set in Hanumanthappa, in Karnataka's Vijayanagara district, this project will see the installation of 12 wind turbine generators, utilizing Hybrid Lattice Tubular towers. The commissioning of this project is also expected to occur in 2024.
Suzlon's 3 MW turbines boast a remarkable 144-meter rotor diameter, specifically designed to maximize energy yield in low-wind sites across all Indian wind regimes. With a local content of up to 85-90%, Suzlon demonstrates its commitment to innovation and self-reliance, aligning with the company's strategic objectives.
The S144 wind turbine generator, a key component of the 3 MW series, is one of India's largest and can be extended up to 3.15 MW, depending on wind conditions. With a hub height ranging from 140 meters to an impressive 160 meters, the S144 will also become India's tallest wind turbine. This groundbreaking technology promises a remarkable 40-43% increase in energy generation compared to Suzlon's previous model, the S120 2.1 MW wind turbine. By optimizing wind resources at higher altitudes, Suzlon enables the viability of low-wind sites, expanding the potential for renewable energy generation.
The 3 MW turbine generators incorporate Suzlon's acclaimed Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology and the SB 70.5 carbon fiber blade, a testament to Suzlon's world-class engineering capabilities. These advanced features enable the utilization of thinner aerodynamic profiles, delivering exceptional performance in low-wind sites and significantly increasing energy generation per unit of land.
