“The project consists of 24 units of S95 90m tubular tower with a rated capacity of 2.1 MW,” Suzlon said in a press release.

The project is located in the Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh and is likely to be completed in March next year, it said.

After bagging this order, the total order portfolio of the company in the current year with the business house reach to 84 MW, of which 33.60 MW was earlier announced as a part of order bagged from small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

The project has the capacity to provide power to more than 27,000 households and cut CO2 emissions to around 0.10 million tonnes per annum.

The platform of S9X 2.1 MW features the time-tested technology of Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) which is designed to optimally utilise given wind resources. This not only gives better energy yield, but also provides maximum returns on investment for clients.
