Renewable energy solutions provider Suzlon Group has opened an aerodynamic technology rotor blade manufacturing facility at Badnawar in Dhar, Madhya Pradesh (MP). The facility, which was inaugurated by MP CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan yesterday, has an annual production capacity of 400 MW and will manufacture rotor blades for its latest S111 2.1 MW turbine.
The latest in its 2.1 MW fleet, the S111 has a blade length of 54.8 meters, making it one of the largest rotor diameter WTGs (wind turbine generator system) in India. Especially designed to enhance wind generation at low wind sites, the S111 reduces the cost of energy, increases return on investment for customers and makes low wind sites viable. “We need to focus on encouraging wind and solar energy to fight against the risks of climate change which is the biggest threat to mankind and MP is moving fast in harnessing clean energy from wind and solar. I congratulate Suzlon for truly contributing to make in India and exporting wind turbines to other countries,” said Shivraj Singh Chouhan, MP Chief Minister.
