Tirupati temple site visited by 50,000 pilgrims daily gets wind plant
1 October 2004
Suzlon Energy is to build and operate six 1 MW wind turbines atop the Tirumala hills in the temple town of Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh, southern India. After ten years, it will transfer ownership of the wind farm for the sum of $65,000 to the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD), a body responsible for management of one of the richest shrines in the world, which is daily visited by up to 50,000 pilgrims. The electricity generated by the wind station will be fed into the national grid. Meantime, Suzlon is also expected to commission its new 2 MW turbine design at its wind farm in Sankaneri, in the district of Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu.
