Wind turbine manufacturer Suzlon Group has signed a global strategic partnership agreement with CGN Wind Energy (CGNWE) to jointly develop 800MW of wind projects in China.

Under the terms of the agreement, Suzlon and CGNWE will co-develop 800MW of domestic and international projects over the next three years.

The parties have formed a working team to explore the most viable projects globally, covering countries such as Brazil, South Africa, India and China.

CGNWE chairman Chensui said with Suzlon’s experience in the global market and the company’s expertise in wind power, it is confident of building very successful projects to meet the renewable energy needs for these markets effectively.

Suzlon chairman Tulsi Tanti said the company hopes its extensive experience in across 32 markets globally will be valuable for CGNWE in its endeavor to operate wind farms globally.

"The professional approach of CGNWE and its experience in developing large projects make this a symbiotic partnership," Tanti said.

Wind power developer CGNWE is a subsidiary of China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group.
