India’s Adani Green Energy Ltd (BOM:541450) has selected compatriot Suzlon Ltd (BOM:532667) to supply and install the turbines at a 48.3-MW wind project it is developing in the state of Gujarat.
The deal will see the Indian manufacturer deliver 23 units of its turbine generators of 2.1 MW each and mount them on hybrid lattice tubular towers, Suzlon said on Tuesday. The scope of its work also includes the commissioning of the hardware, as well as operation and maintenance (O&M) services.
The project covered by the contract will be located in the Mandvi municipality of Gujarat’s Kutch district. The future wind farm is expected to start feeding electricity into the grid in 2023, with its output to be enough to meet the power demand of 31,000 homes annually.
This latest contract represents Suzlon’s second repeat order from Adani Green. The independent power producer’s initial order in the summer of 2021 was for 226.8 MW of Suzlon’s turbines.
