Suzlon Group (Suzlon), India’s largest renewable energy solutions provider, announced that it has landed a significantly large order for its 3-MW series of wind turbines from Serentica Renewables — a decarbonization platform that seeks to accelerate the energy transition for energy-intensive industries. Suzlon will install 68 wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a Hybrid Lattice Tubular (HLT) tower and a rated capacity of 3 MW each for Serentica’s 204-MW wind power project coming up at Koppal in Karnataka. The project is expected to be commissioned by early 2024. This is the fifth order for the Suzlon 3-MW series in less than a month. As part of the agreement, Suzlon will supply the wind turbines (equipment supply) and execute the project including erection and commissioning. Suzlon will also provide comprehensive operation and maintenance services post commissioning.
“We are delighted to partner with corporate India as it ramps up its energy transition journey aided by a highly conducive policy environment,” said Girish Tanti, vice chair of Suzlon Group. “This order from industrial decarbonization player, Serentica Renewables is a testament of India Inc’s commitment to our nation’s net-zero ambitions. The Suzlon 3-MW series is the next stage evolution of our proven technology, customized for the Indian wind regime. This technology platform will play a critical role in accelerating the pace of wind energy installations in India to power the sustainable growth of the country. Suzlon remains committed to an ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ and building a better world for our future generations.”
“This partnership with Suzlon for our renewable energy project in Karnataka represents a milestone in our industrial decarbonisation journey,” said Pratik Agarwal, director of Serentica Renewables. “Clean energy generated by this wind park will play a massive role in providing reliable and quality green power to our industrial customers, while contributing greatly to India’s energy transition goal of 500 GW by 2030.”
“We are happy to announce our first order from Serentica Renewables,” said JP Chalasani, chief executive officer of Suzlon Group. “This order demonstrates the trust that our customers have not just in Suzlon and its expertise but also in our 3-MW series of products. This is a significant order for us and the fact that the electricity generated will be used to power India’s industrial powerhouses makes it even more special. Suzlon is committed to serve Indian industries through green renewable power to catalyze the nation’s economic growth while fulfilling our net-zero targets.”
