Suzlon gets approval for Rajasthan wind power project
Pune, June 19:  Suzlon has received the Notice to Proceed (NTP) from CLP India for a 100.8 MW wind power project at Tejuva in Rajasthan. It comprises 48 units of its S97- 2.1 MW wind turbines featuring Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology.

This is the latest addition to Suzlon’s wind portfolio of over 8,000 MW projects across eight states.

CLP is one of the largest foreign investors in the Indian power sector, and the completion of this project will boost CLP India’s wind power portfolio to close to 1000 MW, Suzlon said in a statement.

Rajiv Mishra, Managing Director, CLP India, said: “India is the fifth largest country in terms of total installed capacity of wind power, with large reserves of untapped potential that spells out a great opportunity for this sector to grow exponentially. We have always firmly believed that accelerated development of the Indian power sector requires investments across all sources of renewable & conventional energy. Wind portfolio has been a key area of thrust for us over the past 4-5 years, with a sustained growth of about 200 to 300 MW every year and we are committed to growing it over the next few years as well.”

With close to 1,000 equity MW, Wind Power now forms almost one-third of CLP's entire portfolio in India.
