Suzlon Signs 88-MW Wind Turbine Deal with Tierra Energy

Suzlon signed a contract with Tierra Energy of Austin, Texas, to provide 42 units of the S88-2.1 megawatt (MW) wind turbine for wind power projects in Texas and Wyoming.

Suzlon will supply 28 wind turbines to the Ocotillo Windpower Project near Big Spring, Texas; and 14 turbines are designated for the Cheyenne, Wyoming-based Happy Jack Windpower Project, Suzlon’s first wind power project in Wyoming. Plus, Suzlon will oversee operations, maintenance and service (OMS) of the wind turbines for five years. “We are expanding our base in three ways; by signing with a new wind partner, by extending our project locations westward, and equally important by working towards project-based financing for Suzlon turbines,” said Andris Cukurs, CEO of Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation, the Chicago-based sales and service subsidiary of Suzlon Energy A/S of Arhus, Denmark. Both projects will take delivery of S88 wind turbines in Spring 2008. David Marks, president of Tierra Energy, said, “These projects demonstrate Tierra’s commitment to renewable energy and to the continued build-out of our development pipeline.”
