About S97 and S111 towers
The S97 2.1 MW wind turbine generator (WTG) features the time tested Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology which is designed to maximise generation and unlock low wind sites. It is one of the tallest all-steel hybrid tower (120 meter height) in the world and combines both lattice and tubular structures. It has achieved a plant load factor (PLF) of 35% over the first 12 months of operation.
The S111 90m features a rotor diameter of 111.8 meters with a swept area of more than 9500 square meters, making it one of the highest yielding wind turbines in its class. The S111 90m proto type was successfully commissioned in Tamil Nadu.
The project is capable of providing power to over 28,000 households and offset 0.11 million tons of CO2 emissions per annum and projects to be commissioned in Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat by June 2017.
A comprehensive range of services and dedicated life cycle asset management services for an initial period of 10 years will be provided by Suzlon. (Source: Suzlon)
