Duncan Koerbel, the CEO of the group’s US-based Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation unit, said: “Exelon is one of Suzlon Group’s largest and long standing customers and sets very high standards for wind turbine operations, maintenance, and safety, and we strive to be their easiest OEM to do business with.”
