May 22 (Renewables Now) - India’s Suzlon Ltd (BOM:532667) said on Monday that it has secured a contract to supply turbines for a planned 204-MW wind farm in the Indian state of Karnataka, booking the fifth order for its 3-MW machines in less than a month.
The latest order was placed by Serentica Renewables, Indian decarbonisation platform oriented towards energy-intensive customers, which procured 68 pieces of Suzlon’s 3-MW series wind turbines for a project located in the town of Koppal.
The turbines have a 144-metre rotor diameter and are designed for low wind sites. They can generate up to 3.15 MW, depending on wind conditions, according to Suzlon.
The wind turbine maker said it would supply, erect and commission the hardware. The contract also includes the provision of comprehensive operation and maintenance services.
Commissioning of the wind farm is expected to take place by early 2024.
