Suzlon turbine capacity to over 1000 MW
ChicagoPune: Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation, the US-based subsidiary of Suzlon
Energy A/S of Denmark, has signed a contract to supply a total of 300 units of the
S88-2.1 MW turbine, which is equivalent to 630 MW of capacity, with Edison Mission
Group (EMG) of Irvine, California.
The two-phase contract calls for delivery of 315 MW of turbine capacity in 2008 and
another 315 MW of capacity in 2009, which along with previous purchases brings
EMGs total committed Suzlon turbine capacity to over 1,000 MW and makes it
Suzlons biggest customer. This is also the single largest order in Suzlons history.
This repeat order brings EMGs total committed capacity to a Suzlon company record
of 1,000 megawatts, said Andris Cukurs, CEO of Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation,
based in Chicago, Illinois. Suzlon is honored to say that EMG has become our biggest
customer to date.

the renewed commitment weve received from EMG since 2003, We are very proud of
the relationship we have built with EMG. said Andre Horbach, CEO of Suzlon Group,
