Suzlon has commissioned 50.40-MW wind power turnkey project for Ostro Energy Pvt Ltd (owned by Actis). This is Ostro’s first wind power project in India.

Located in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan and comprising 24 WTGs (Wind Turbine Generators) of 2.1 MW each, it is an integral part of Suzlon’s Jaisalmer wind park, billed to be the country’s largest wind park with a cumulative capacity over 1,300 MW.

The Pune-based wind energy major is responsible for the entire project lifecycle, from development, construction to commissioning and has also been contracted to undertake operations and maintenance services of the project for 12 years.

The project will provide electricity to over 28,000 homes and curb ~0.10 million tonnes of CO2 emissions annually, the company said in a statement.

Ranjit Gupta, CEO, Ostro Energy, said: “The successful commissioning of our 50.40 MW Tejuva wind project signals our ambitious expansion plans in the renewable sector and is an important first milestone in Ostro’s journey to 800 MW of wind capacity. We see wind as a highly viable investment option with its techno-economic maturity and green credentials.”

Ishwar Mangal, Chief Sales Officer, Suzlon Energy, added, “Clean energy solutions is fast becoming critical to the energy supply equation in India. We are delighted to extend India's wind energy footprint, drawing on our understanding of the energy sector.”
