Pune, India: Suzlon Group, India's largest renewable energy solutions provider, today announced its new order win for development of a 252 MW wind power project from CLP India. Suzlon will install 120 units of S120-140m wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a Hybrid Lattice Tubular (HLT) tower, with rated capacity of 2.1 MW each. The project is located in Sidhpur, Gujarat and is expected to be commissioned in 2022.
Suzlon will execute the project with a scope of supply, foundation, erection and commissioning. Suzlon will also provide comprehensive operation and maintenance services post commissioning.

CLP and Suzlon have enjoyed a long and fruitful association and share a common vision for an energy secure India powered by sustainable and renewable sources of energy. This is the first big order that we have announced post our debt restructuring closure in line with our plans to restart business operations and lead the Indian Wind Energy market from the front.
