Suzlon to supply turbines to South African wind project

Indian power company Suzlon has been chosen as the preferred bidder for a 138 MW wind project in South Africa.

The AmakhalaEmoyeni Phase 1 development is being built by Cennergi, a joint venture between South Africa's Exxaro Resources and Tata Power Company, India’s largest private power utility.

Suzlon will supply 66 of its S97-2.1 MW turbines under a full EPC deal, with construction due to start early next year.

Cennergi chief executive Thomas Garner said a key factor of Suzlon winning the bid was its “current standing in the energy sector in South Africa”.

Between February and April this year, Suzlon won contracts worth $387m in Europe.
