Wind turbine maker Suzlon Energy has bagged an order from China's Inner Mongolia North Longyuan Wind Power Corporation for supplying 80 of its S64-1.25 MW wind power turbines.
Suzlon will supply 1.25 mega Watt turbines of a combined capacity of 100 MW, in two lots of 50 MW each in fiscal 2010 and 2011.
The order was secured by Suzlon Energy (Tianjin), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Suzlon, the company said in its filing.
Suzlon Energy (Tianjin), located in Tianjin's Hi-Tech Industrial Park, manufactures wind turbine generators and integrates major WTG components, including rotor blades, generators, nacelles and control panels, with an annual capacity of 600 MW for all components. The facility also houses a world class technology and design centre.
The order size is in excess of $100 million, reports quoted Sumant Sinha, COO of Suzlon Energy, as saying.
Tulsi Tanti-controlled Suzlon is the world's fifth largest wind turbine maker and commands around 10.5 per cent of global market for wind turbines.
North Longyuan, a joint venture between North Union Power and Longyuan, is one of the largest power developers in China. The company is setting up a wind power project near Hohhot, the capital of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
Suzlon Energy had, last month, received an order to supply wind turbine generators to AGL Energy to help the Australian firm generate 113.4 MW of power, for an undisclosed amount.
Suzlon will supply Australian 2.1 MW wind turbines of a total capacity of 113 MW capacity to Gas and Light Company (AGL), the largest utility in Australia, later this year.
