Suzlon launches 1.5 MW turbine for low wind sites in India

Suzlon Group is launching the 1.5 MW S8X wind turbine for Class III, low wind sites in India.


The S8X wind turbine is designed specifically for the Indian market where the majority of potential lies in medium-to-low wind sites, Suzlon says.


The rotors have diameters of 86.5 m and 89 m, and the tower measures 90 m. This could improve energy yields by 15-20% over the current S82 1.5 MW. The S8X is also designed for high temperatures.


John O'Halloran, President, Technology, at Suzlon Energy, says: "This marks an extremely important step forward in our product strategy. The S8X builds on our extensive operating experience with our highly successful S82 – 1.5 MW fleet in some of the most challenging environments in the world. The development programme drew extensively on feedback from our key customer groups – primarily PSUs and IPPs in India – to create a product that meets their current and future needs, and provides consistently improving returns on investment."


Tulsi Tanti, Chairman, Suzlon Group, adds: "As the Indian wind market continues to grow at over 40% per year, we believe the S8X will be a game changer in the high-growth 1.5 MW segment – delivering higher reliability, uptime, energy production and ultimately greatly improved returns on investment to customers over its lifecycle."
