According to reports, the Suzlon Group will commission a 138-MW wind power project for the South African Government.
The company said the bid project was submitted by Cennergi under the second window of the ‘Request for Bids’ for the Independent Power Producers Programme. The project will come up in Eastern Cape.
Cennergi is an equal joint venture between South Africa’s Exxaro Resources and Tata Power.
Cennergi chose to use 66 of Suzlon’s 2.1-MW turbines for the project. Suzlon will deliver the turbines under a full EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) agreement.
Construction of the project is expected to start in the first quarter of 2013.
