Suzlon Group produces its first blade for the New S111 2.1 MW Turbine

 Wind turbine maker Suzlon Group has completed the production of its first blade for its S111 2.1 MW turbine. The S111 is a technologically advanced product of the S88 and S97 2.1 MW family. This product has been specifically designed for Suzlon’s next generation 2.1 MW turbine and is engineered to deliver a 20 per cent increase in AEP (Annual Energy Production) at the same hub height compared to Suzlon’s S97 wind turbine model.
The S111 is built on the proven reliability of the S88 and S95/97 2.1MW family that currently has over 3100 turbines installed in fifteen different countries with over 68,000,000 operating hours. The blade is designed to harness the optimal available wind resources and deliver higher energy productivity, which in turn ensures higher ROI to customers. Suzlon turbines have been setting industry benchmarks across the entire technology value chain by meeting new standards.
Laurens van der Sande, Project Manager, S111/SB54 blade said, “The first SB54 blade is the longest and cleanest aerodynamic profile Suzlon has ever produced. This milestone has been achieved due to an effective integration between the product design, production unit and the tool design. The result is reflected in a shorter production timeline with a high yield product.
Tulsi Tanti, Chairman – Suzlon Group, said, “The turbine design makes it ideal for low wind sites in growth markets like the US and India. “
