Indian turbine tech to develop 140MW of wind energy across EU

Suzlon group to supply 3MW wind turbines for France, Germany and Eastern Europe

The wind turbines will be supplied to countries across Europe including France

Around 140MW of Indian turbine technology is being used to increase wind power across Europe.  Leading Indian firm Suzlon Group will supply its 3MW wind turbines to countries across the EU, including France, Germany and Eastern Europe.
The projects include several onshore wind farms featuring Suzlon subsidiary group REpower’s latest 3.4M104 and 3.2M114 turbine models, which have 3.4 and 3.2MW of rated power respectively.

Speaking about the BRIC-EU development, Tulsi Tanti, Suzlon Group chairman, said: “These orders clearly underscore the continuing momentum in the wind sector across developed and developing markets. This also highlights our strong outlook and long-term business visibility driven by our strong competitive global positioning as a group.”

The development is the latest example of Suzlon’s turbines being used to increase wind energy in Germany. It follows subsidiary firm REpower signing a deal in September to deploy what the company claims are the world’s most powerful offshore turbines for a 332MW wind farm off the EU country’s coast.
