Technology is the key enabler for a company be a market leader. Suzlon’s sophisticated R&D capabilities in the wind energy space have led to the development of a comprehensive product portfolio, ranging from 600 kW to 6.15 MW (Repower) wind turbines. Though the dynamic increase in wind turbines ratings has slowed since 2006 wind turbine technology as such continues to be a dynamic field of research with the focus more on reliability, ease of operation and loads reduction which will enable weight and cost reductions of wind turbines. There is a strong focus on increasing the energy yield of wind turbines at a given rating by improving aerodynamics and applying larger rotors.
The Technology Group, led from its R&D Headquarters in Hamburg, derives its technological success from a close collaboration between the development teams in Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark and India.
