Suzlon Energy has signed a deal to supply 150 MW for a project being developed by DLF Limited, one of India's leading infrastructure development and real estate companies. The 100 Suzlon 1.5 MW turbines will go up in Gujarat, where Suzlon has already installed 250 MW for other clients. The DLF project, due for completion by March 2008, "marks a major new initiative from DLF to invest in power, one of the most critical infrastructure areas for India today and through wind making it an environmentally friendly and sustainable venture," says Suzlon's I. C. Mangal. Meanwhile, Suzlon is upgrading three facilities in India, one a turbine factory and the other two forging and machining facilities. Upon completion of the $746 million program, the company will have increased its turbine manufacturing capacity in India to 5700 MW a year, it says, some for export markets.
