Suzlon Group, a known name in the renewable energy sector, has secured a significant order from BrightNight, a global renewable energy producer, to develop 29.4 MW of wind power capacity as part of a 100 MW co-located wind-solar hybrid project. Suzlon will achieve this by deploying fourteen units of their S120-140m wind turbine generators (WTGs) equipped with a Hybrid Lattice Tubular (HLT) tower, each with a rated capacity of 2.1 MW. The project site is located in Osmanabad, Maharashtra.
The project will be implemented in phases, with the initial phase set to commence in April 2024. Suzlon’s responsibilities encompass the entire project, including the supply, installation, and commissioning of the equipment. Furthermore, Suzlon will provide post-commissioning operation and maintenance services to ensure the project’s long-term success and efficiency.
As reported by Saur Energy International, Suzlon turbines are characterised by a high domestic content, typically exceeding 80% to 90%, and are produced within the country through a locally integrated supply chain. Suzlon asserts that their turbines utilize the well-established Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology, which seamlessly integrates wind turbines with the utility grid to fulfill grid-related needs.
