The Suzlon Group is one of the leading renewable energy solutions providers in the world with 20 GW of wind energy capacity installed across 17 countries. Suzlon is India’s No. 1 wind service company with the largest service portfolio of ~13.9 GW of wind energy assets.

The group has 5.9 GW of installed capacity outside India. The 3 MW Series wind turbine technology platform is the latest addition to its comprehensive product portfolio.

On Tuesday, Suzlon Energy announced  that  it  crossed  20 GW  wind  energy  installations  milestone  through  12,467  wind  turbines  installed  across  17  countries  that spans across six  continents,  solidifying  Suzlon's  position  as  a  significant  player in the global wind energy landscape.

"This milestone  creates  a  concrete  foundation  for  the company  to  build  on  for exponential  growth in  coming  years  and  is  a  true  Aatmanirbhar  Bharat  moment,  wherein  an  Indian  company  is  creating  global  benchmarks with turbines manufactured in India," said Girish Tanti, Vice Chairman, Suzlon Group.

According  to  the Ministry  of  New  and  Renewable  Energy  (MNRE),  India  currently  has  a  total  renewable energy capacity of 168.96 GW  (as on 28th February 2023) with about 82 GW at various  stages  of  implementation  and  about  41  GW  under  tendering  stage.  This includes 64.38 GW solar power, 51.79 GW hydro power, 42.02 GW wind power, and 10.77 GW bio-power.

Suzlon has become the first Indian wind energy company to reach 20 GW of worldwide wind energy installation and has a 33 per cent cumulative wind energy market share in India.

The improvement in balance sheet is on the back of the company’s Operation and Maintenance Service (OMS) and Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) arms, along with industry tailwinds, restructuring, refinancing and a successful rights issue.

Suzlon’s portfolio ranges from 225KW to the newly-launched 3MW-S414 series, which contributes 51 per cent of the current order book (1,542MW).

"Lately, the industry has seen positive developments: the GoI is expected to invite annual wind capacity bids of ~10GW across eight windy states, single stage closed bids and ISTS waiver for 25 years which offer a visible trajectory of the wind pipeline," said  analysts at Emkay Global Financial Services.
