Suzlon Energy's Australian subsidiary has signed two major new orders, totaling over 200MW of capacity, with Renewable Power Ventures and utility-major AGL Energy.

The first contract, from Sydney-based Renewable Power Ventures (RPV), is for the delivery of 63 units of Suzlon’s 2.1MW wind turbine, translating to 132MW of capacity. The contract includes full turnkey delivery including a 330kV electrical substation and power line works and is scheduled for completion in the first half of 2009.

The second contract from AGL Energy is for the delivery of 34 units of the 2.1MW turbine, translating to 71.4MW of capacity. The project will be established in South Australia, approximately 250km north of Adelaide and near AGL’s Hallett project.

Dan Hansen, CEO of Suzlon Energy Australia, said: We are very pleased to partner with RPV and AGL Energy to deliver sustainable power solutions in Australia. The large size of the orders, and AGL’s repeat-order, demonstrate our ability to deliver total wind farm solutions to the exacting expectations of our customers. We are looking to continue our success and assume an even larger role on Australia’s wind energy stage.

Suzlon had earlier signed a contract to supply turbines for the Hallett windfarm.
