Pune: Suzlon Group ended 2012 as the world’s fifth leading wind turbine supplier in
terms of marketshare and cumulative capacity based on rankings published by BTM
Consult ApS – a part of Navigant Consulting, in its annual ‘World Market Update’
report.

The Group also ranked as the leading wind company in India, supplying 803 MW to
achieve 34 per cent of marketshare in 2012. Additionally, the company ranked as the
second leading supplier in Canada, and ranked third in France, Germany and Italy.

Speaking on the development, Mr Tulsi Tanti – Chairman, Suzlon Group, said:
“We are proud to have ranked as the world’s fifth leading wind turbine maker, and of
having maintained our position as the market leader in India, now for 16 years
running, despite the challenges we faced as a business and a turbulent market
environment.

“I believe this achievement highlights the fundamental strength of our business built
on our comprehensive product portfolio, a world class service organization and a
strong footprint in all key wind markets worldwide. Adding to this our orderbook of
over US$ 7 bn, we have the ingredients to build on this success for the future.”

The global wind market set a new record for installations with 44.95 GW of capacity
coming online in 2012, and offshore wind more than doubling in terms of annual
installations. Europe lost its preeminent position as the region installing the most
wind power to North America, achieving 28.5 per cent of all new installations against
North America’s 35.2 per cent. China and India remained the leading markets in the
Asian region, despite the drop in installations in 2012.

2012 also saw Suzlon Group cross 21,000 MW in terms of global installed capacity,
firmly cementing the Group’s position as the fifth largest wind company in terms of
cumulative installations. The Group’s German subsidiary, REpower Systems SE, also
doubled its annual installations, achieving over 2.1 GW in 2012. The Group fleet,
now standing at approximately 22,000 MW, also achieved consistent availability
(uptime) levels of over 98 per cent, well in excess of industry standards.
