The project is part of the bid won by CLP India in SECI’s VIII tranche of wind projects, some of which have been delayed significantly due to land availability issues in Gujarat. This particular project will be based at Sidhpur in Gujarat. CLP India had won the bid with a price of Rs 2.83 per unit. The project  is the largest renewable project at a single site for CLP India.

Suzlon will be involved in the supply, foundation, erection, and commissioning of the project and will also provide comprehensive operation and maintenance services after commissioning.

Suzlon will provide and install 120 S120-140m HLT wind turbines with a nominal capacity of 2.1 MW each. With a completion date of 2022, work will need to pick up fast.

The S120-140m wind turbines feature Dual Feed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology that integrates wind turbines into the utility grid to meet grid requirements. These are also designed to perform at higher altitudes, and are capable of working at  low-wind sites at viable levels.

CLP India is owned by CLP Group, one of Asia’s largest investor-owned energy companies, and Caisse de dépôt et location du Québec (CDPQ), a global investment group. Since its founding in  2002, it  has grown to become one of the largest foreign investors in the Indian energy sector. Its diversified portfolio comprises more than 3,000 MW of electricity generating capacity, including wind and solar power projects in seven states, as well as transmission assets.

For Suzlon, this is the first major project announcement after its last round of debt restructuring, making it a critical step towards complete rehabilitation financially.
