Suzlon Energy Ltd. said its group subsidiary REpower Systems SE had concluded a contract with an East Coast US wind power developer for 73 MM92 turbines, with an overall power output of 150 MW. These turbines are destined for a project in Oklahoma, located in the south-central region of the United States.
The wind turbines each have a rated output of 2.05 MW, a rotor diameter of 92 metres and a hub height of 80 metres. Due to the climatic conditions the turbines are equipped with the Hot Climate Option, which eases operation during the dry, hot summer months in that region of the country.
The company said the delivery and initial operation of the turbines was planned for the third and fourth quarters of CY2012 (Q2, Q3 FY13).
REpower Systems Chief Executive Officer Andreas Nauen said: “We are pleased to announce our second largest US project to date and supply the reliable MM92 turbines for what will be REpower’s first wind farmlocated in the south-central region of the country.”
Suzlon Group Chairman Tulsi Tanti commented, “This order once again underscores our strong competitive positioning as a Group in the US market. With our comprehensive product portfolio, extensive service capabilities and a robust track record, we are well positioned to grab opportunities in the high growth expected in the US market in 2012.”
