Wind turbine manufacturer Suzlon Group has completed the commissioning of a 50 MW project in India.
The Tejuva wind farm in Rajasthan was built for New Delhi-based Ostro Energy and is intended to provide electricity to over 28,000 homes.
Suzlon was responsible for the entire project lifecycle, from development to construction and commissioning. It will also carry out operations and maintenance services for 12 years.
The project – Ostro’s first wind power project in India – comprises 24 turbines of 2.1 MW each and is part of Suzlon’s Jaisalmer wind park.
Ostro Energy chief executive Ranjit Gupta said the commissioning of the Tejuva project “signals our ambitious expansion plans in the renewable sector and is an important first milestone in Ostro’s journey to 800 MW of wind capacity”.
He added that Ostro regarded wind “as a highly viable investment option with its techno-economic maturity and green credentials”.
Suzlon Energy’s chief sales officer, Ishwar Mangal, said: “Clean energy solutions is fast becoming critical to the energy supply equation in India. We are delighted to extend India’s wind energy footprint.”
