Suzlon Group wins 150 MW order in Oklahoma, USA
- 73 MM92 wind turbines with Hot Climate Option
- Delivery and installation scheduled for the second half of CY2012
Pune / Hamburg: Suzlon Group subsidiary, REpower Systems SE, has concluded a
contract with an East Coast US wind power developer for the delivery of 73 wind
turbines. The REpower MM92 turbines, with an overall power output of 150
megawatts (MW), are destined for a project in Oklahoma, located in the southcentral
region of the United States.
The wind turbines each have a rated output of 2.05 MW, a rotor diameter of 92
metres and a hub height of 80 metres. Due to the climatic conditions the turbines
are equipped with the Hot Climate Option, which eases operation during the dry, hot
summer months in that region of the country. The delivery and initial operation of
the turbines is planned for the third and fourth quarters of CY2012 (Q2, Q3 FY13).
Andreas Nauen, Chief Executive Officer REpower Systems SE said: We are
pleased to announce our second largest US project to date and supply the reliable
MM92 turbines for what will be REpowers first wind farm located in the south-central
region of the country.
Tulsi Tanti, Chairman Suzlon Group, added: This order once again
underscores our strong competitive positioning as a Group in the US market. With
our comprehensive product portfolio, extensive service capabilities and a robust
track record, we are well positioned to grab opportunities in the high growth
expected in the US market in 2012.
