Suzlon's S95-2.1 MW Gets Type Certification

Turbine maker Suzlon Energy Ltd. announced completion of testing and certification of its S95 STV (Standard Temperature Version) turbine in its 50 Hz and 60 Hz variants.

The company said the testing was carried out by independent third party testing agencies, and the certification by Gerrnanischer Lloyd, a global leader in certification.

The S95, with a rotor diameter of 95 meters and tower heights of 80, 90 and 100 meters, is specially designed for medium wind speed sites (Class II wind regimes). It is part of the S9X suite of turbines, which has already seen over 1,000 MW in orders since its launch in April 2011.

The S95, in testing and validation, delivered 102 percent of its estimated power cure, translating to higher than projected power generation, and improved returns for customers - an increase in energy yield of over 3 million kilowatt-hours over the turbine's lifetime. The S9X suite builds on Suzlon's long experience in the 2 MW space with its fleet of over 2,000 S88 turbines - translating to over 4,000 MW of power generating capacity - operating around the world. The S9X builds on the robust track record of the S88 and was designed with exhaustive customer input to customize the product and service offerings to meet the exact needs of customers and operators around the world.

Suzlon Group Chairman Tulsi Tanti said, "We are pleased to present these findings to the market. Our customers have already placed more than 1 GW of orders with us for the S9X suite of turbines, and this result clearly underscores that we have delivered a product that exceeds their demanding standards. As Suzlon Group, we have a wind turbine for every kind of wind site in the world, and our focus remains to generate more energy from the same resources, creating more profit for our customers and more green energy to power the global economy."

Suzlon Energy President-Technology John O'Halloran said, "This is a phenomenal achievement. It is incredibly rare that a complex product like a wind turbine - with over 2,000 parts and weighing over 250 tonnes - generates more than was even projected. This increase is mainly attributed to our new smart aerodynamic technology and efficient control systems. We are pleased to report that the S9X suite is consistently delivering 97 percent plus up-time on all installations, over a period of more than ten months now."

At the BSE, Suzlon Energy shares are currently trading at Rs.,25.10, down by 5.99 percent from the previous close.
