Suzlon's China subsidiary, Suzlon Energy Tianjin Limited, has won two orders totalling 100 MW from Chinese power project developer Jingneng Group. It will supply 33, 1.5 MW turbines for Jingneng's Abaga wind farm and 40 of its 1.25 MW model for the Huitengxile wind farm. Both projects are in Inner Mongolia. All the turbines, due for delivery by May, will be produced in Suzlon's Tianjin factory, the largest wholly foreign-funded turbine assembly facility in north central China, with an annual capacity of 600 MW. "If the market is good, we can easily expand the capacity by 50%," notes Suzlon's Paulo Soares. Jingneng is a state-owned company funded by the Beijing municipal government. It is currently building 300 MW of wind plant across Inner Mongolia and Hebei Province.
