Suzlon signs Australian orders; Two contracts over 200 MW of capacity

Mumbai: Suzlon Energy Limited (SEL), the world’s fifth leading and India’s largest
wind turbine manufacturer announced the signing of two major new orders in
Australia. The contracts, totaling over 200 MW of capacity, were signed with Sydney’s
RPV (Renewable Power Ventures) and utility-major AGL Energy by the company’s
Australia-operations arm – Suzlon Energy Australia Pty Ltd (SEA).

Speaking on the orders Mr. Dan Kofoed Hansen, CEO – SEA, said: “We are very
pleased to partner with RPV and AGL Energy to deliver sustainable power solutions in
Australia. The large size of the orders, and AGL’s repeat-order, demonstrate our ability
to deliver total wind farm solutions to the exacting expectations of our customers. We
are looking to continue our success and assume an even larger role on Australia’s wind
energy stage.”

The first contract, from Sydney-based Renewable Power Ventures, calls for the
delivery of 63 units of Suzlon S88 – 2.1 MW wind turbine, translating to 132 MW of
capacity. The project, named ‘Capital Wind Farm’, will come up in New South Wales,
approximately 50 kilometers north of Canberra. The contract includes full turnkey
delivery including a 330kV electrical substation and power line works and is scheduled
for completion in the first half of 2009.

The second contract, a repeat contract from AGL Energy – one of Australia’s leading
utilities - calls for the delivery of 34 units of Suzlon’s S88 turbine translating to 71.4
MW of capacity. The project will come up in South Australia approximately 250
kilometers north of Adelaide, and near the original Hallett project where AGL’s initial
95 MW project supplied by Suzlon is under development.

"The Hallett Hill wind farm will significantly add to AGL’s capability to selfsupply
its renewable generation needs. Hallett Hill is a superior location for
wind generation. In addition to one of the best wind resources on mainland
Australia, its proximity to the Hallett wind farm, which will use the same
turbines, will provide significant opportunities for operating efficiencies and
synergies” stated Mr Michael Fraser, CEO of AGL Energy

“With its plentiful windy sites and a growing economy, we believe Australia is key
market for wind energy. We are very proud to partner with Renewable Power Ventures
and AGL Energy to deliver the economically profitable and environmentally sustainable
benefits of wind energy to Australia,” stated, Mr. Andre Horbach – CEO, Suzlon
Group.
