Pune, June 19 (IBNS): Suzlon Group, the world’s fifth largest wind turbine manufacturer, on Thursday announced that it has received the Notice to Proceed (NTP) from CLP India, a leading investor-owned power business in Asia and one of the largest foreign investors in the Indian power sector, for a 100.8 MW wind power project.

The project, located at Tejuva in Rajasthan, will comprise 48 units of Suzlon’s robust S97- 2.1 MW wind turbines featuring Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology. 

This is the latest addition to Suzlon’s wind portfolio of over 8000MW projects across eight states. Upon completion, this project will boost CLP India’s wind power portfolio to close to 1000 MW, reinforcing its position as the leading independent power producer in the wind sector in India, foreign or domestic.

Rajiv Mishra, Managing Director, CLP India said: “India is the fifth largest country in terms of total installed capacity of wind power, with large reserves of untapped potential that spells out a great opportunity for this sector to grow exponentially."

"We have always firmly believed that accelerated development of the Indian power sector requires investments across all sources of renewable & conventional energy, which is critical to achieving a certain degree of energy security over a period of time.  

"Wind portfolio has been a key area of thrust for us over the past 4-5 years, with a sustained growth of about 200 to 300 MW every year and we are committed to growing it over the next few years as well."

Mahesh Makhija, Director, Renewables Business Development, CLP India said: “With close to 1000 equity MW, Wind Power now forms almost one-third of our entire portfolio in India.  It is indeed a strong reflection of our commitment to reducing carbon emissions to the extent we can and to growing our business responsibly.  This partnership with Suzlon will make an important contribution towards meeting our commitment to growing our Renewables portfolio." 

Tulsi Tanti, Chairman, Suzlon Group said: “This contract is another milestone for our business in India. Through our comprehensive capabilities across wind energy value chain and end-to-end solutions, we will assist CLP India in further expanding their wind energy footprint in India. We appreciate the trust they have in our technology and look forward to a long-term collaboration.”
