Pune, India: Suzlon Group, India's largest renewable energy solutions provider, announced its second quarter results for the financial year 2021-22 (Q2 FY22).
Ashwani Kumar, Chief Executive Officer, Suzlon Group, said, "We are happy to see that operations are smoothening further and the impact of COVID-19 is reducing slowly but surely across the value-chain in India. However, we are staying vigilant since global uncertainty around COVID-19 continues to persist. We have achieved installations of 113 MW in H1 FY22 and are focussed on servicing our existing order book which stands at 1091 MW. The wind energy sector as a whole has been subdued with an addition of only 610 MW in H1 of FY22."
"The Indian wind energy industry is facing several issues, not allowing the sector to unlock its full potential. Increasing commodity prices and logistics costs along with the enhancement of GST on Goods from 5% to 12% will further result in higher project costs and impact margins making several current projects unviable."
Himanshu Mody, Chief Financial Officer, Suzlon Group, said, "Q2 of FY22 continued to see rising global demand which disrupted the supply chain, impacting availability and prices across the value chain eroding our margins and volumes. Despite that, we have kept our operations on track with most of the manufacturing facilities functioning in line with our business plan. We have maintained our quarter on quarter (QoQ) performance with a revenue of Rs. 1,346.51 crores and we continue to keep a strict control on costs. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, our Operations and Maintenance Service (OMS) business continued to deliver good turbine performance in Q2."
The Company would also like to inform that the divestment of the Company's 75% stake in Suzlon Generators Limited, a subsidiary of the Company, to Voith Turbo Private Limited or its associates, which was expected to be completed by Q2 of FY22, as intimated by the Company to the stock exchanges on 29th June 2021, has been delayed on account of procedural formalities. It is now likely to get completed by Q4 of FY22.
