Suzlon strikes 99MW US deal

Indian wind group Suzlon has booked an order to supply up to 99MW of turbines for developments in the US.

Suzlon will deliver up to 47 turbines for wind farms planned by developer Power Works in the states of California and Illinois, including its Panther Creek project in the latter.

The deliveries, via Suzlon’s US subsidiary, will begin in summer 2015.

The deal covers Suzlon’s S97 2.1MW and S111 2.1 turbines and includes a two-year O&M agreement.

Suzlon said the deal is the first for its S111, which is designed for low-wind sites in a variety of climates and at altitude.

Chairman Tulsi Tanti said: “We have a strong focus on the US market as it offers a favourable renewable energy environment and federal policy framework moving in the right direction.”

The US deal is more good news for Suzlon, which yesterday revealed it had concluded long-running talks to restructure $485m of bonds.
