Suzlon Group, India's largest renewable energy solutions provider, has announced the installation and commissioning of its new product, S128; the largest wind turbine generator (WTG) in India. The first prototype of S128 has been commissioned at the Sanganeri, site in Tamilnadu. Testing is underway with certification expected in Q3 of CY2018. The S128 WTG is available in 2.6 MW to 2.8 MW variants and offers hub heights up to 140 meters.  

The S128 wind turbine generator is the latest addition to Suzlon’s product portfolio and features the time tested Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology. It also consists of the country’ slargest rotor blade measuring 63 meters and has a rotor diameter of 128 meters.

The SB 63 blade has been engineered and developed by Suzlon utilizing carbon fiber which provides the capability to utilize thinner aerodynamic profiles. This technology provides excellent performance in low wind sites.

The S128 series offers ~33% more swept area (12,860 m2 ) and is expected to deliver ~32% more energy generation compared to the S111. It is designed to optimally harness wind resources at higher altitudes making low wind sites viable. This next generation turbine is well equipped to improve energy yield and support competitive tariff environment in India while protecting customers return on investment.

J.P. Chalasani, Group CEO, Suzlon Group said, ''The S128 wind turbine is going to be a revolutionary product in India. It has been our continuous effort to reduce the levelised cost of energy (LCoE) and we continue to invest in R&D with an aim to develop technologically advanced and innovative products. It is a proud moment for us to manufacture, install and commission the largest wind turbine generator in the country. With its reduced levelised cost of energy (LCoE), cost effective design and superior performance S128 will unlock unviable sites and set new benchmarks in the Indian wind industry.'' 

Shares of the company declined Rs 0.16, or 1.38%, to trade at  Rs 11.41.  The total volume of shares traded  was  1,014,904 at the BSE (10.11 a.m., Wednesday).
