Suzlon installs 350 MW wind energy projects in Brazil

New Delhi:  Suzlon Group, wind turbine maker, today said it has commissioned wind energy projects having a total capacity of 350 MW in Brazil.

“Suzlon Group has announced installing and commissioning of over 350 MW wind energy in Brazil over a period of 16 months ending November 2014,” the company said in a statement.

These projects are located in the high wind states of Rio Grande do Norte and Ceara in Brazil.

The installations include 150 wind turbine generators.

“We remain focused on high growth and emerging markets and Brazil is a key geography of our growth strategy. Suzlon is committed to contribute to Brazil’s energy basket by reducing its carbon footprint and bridging the country’s power needs,” Tulsi R Tanti, Chairman, Suzlon Group, said.

These projects will contribute to reducing Brazil’s carbon footprint by eliminating approximately 0.54 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per annum.

The 350 MW projects completed are expected to light up one lakh households in Brazil with clean energy.

Suzlon entered the Brazilian market in 2008 and has since created a cumulative installed capacity of approximately 750 MW.

Shares of Suzlon Energy were trading at Rs. 26.25 on the BSE.
