Renewable energy solutions provider, Suzlon Energy said that it has achieved generation yield of 7.66 million Kwh over the last 12 months post commissioning in Kutch, Gujarat.
The group’s revolutionary S111 120 m 2.1 MW wind turbine generator has achieved 42 per cent plant load factor in first 12 months of operation in Kutch, Gujarat.
The prototype was commissioned in March 2016, the company said in a filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange.
The 42 per cent PLF demonstrated by S111 120m is 20 per cent higher than 35 per cent PLF achieved by S97 120m in its first 12 months’ performance at the same location.
The S111 wind turbine generator is the latest addition to the 2.1 MW platform and features the time tested Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology.
With a swept area of 9,852 m 2 the S111 120m is designed to optimally harness wind resources at higher altitudes making low wind sites viable. It not only delivers superior energy yield, but also offers higher return on investment for customers.
The new fleet of Suzlon has garnered encouraging market response from customer segments across the board, it said.
Meanwhile, shares of the company closed trading at Rs 20.85 apiece, up 0.24 per cent from the previous close on BSE.
