Suzlon is planning to set up a new manufacturing facility for low speed wind turbine near Madurai in Tamil Nadu. The project cost is estimated at Rs. 500 million and it will be commissioned by 2012. This turbine is designed with advanced rotors, with diameters of 86.5 and 89 meters, and a tower height of 90 meters, which will bring improvements in energy yields of between 15 to 20 percent over the current S82 – 1.5 MW offering in low wind conditions. Additionally, it is designed specifically to operate in high temperatures.The company hopes to look at the potential of the off-shore wind power generation in Tamil Nadu.
