Suzlon sees strong demand for wind energy in China

Reuters cited Mr Tulsi Tanti chairman of Indian wind turbine maker Suzlon Energy as saying that the company could begin exporting Chinese assembled turbines to third countries as early as next year.


He said that with the company expecting about a 40% increase in global revenue this fiscal year, Suzlon is also seeking a Chinese joint-venture partner to produce large turbines in China for the Chinese market


Mr Tanti said though he did not have a more specific timeline that the company plans to produce 2 MW turbines for export that could begin next year.


He said that potential partners could be gas or oil exploration companies with experience in building and operating offshore platforms.


He said of potential joint venture partners that "We are looking at state-owned companies only. We can bring the technology and the other partner brings other expertise, so it will be a good business model to offer customers as a complete turnkey solution."


Mr Tanti said "China will remain a large market for the next two decades. If you look at the next 10 years China will need 600 GW of additional energy and we expect at least 20% will come from wind."


Suzlon hopes to produce its 6 MW turbines in China for the Chinese market. They are the largest commercial wind turbines in the world and are currently made at its subsidiary REPower in Germany.


Suzlon the world fifth largest wind turbine manufacturer by capacity builds 2 megawatt wind turbines in Tianjin and exports components from China for their assembly at the company facilities in India, the United States and Germany.
