Suzlon Group, through U.S.-based subsidiary Suzlon Wind Energy Corp., has signed an agreement to supply PowerWorks with up to 98.7 MW of wind turbines for projects in California and Illinois.

Under the deal, Suzlon says it will supply up to 29 units of the S97 2.1 MW turbines and 17 units of the first S111 2.1 MW turbines for the two projects, one of which is the Panther Creek wind farm. The company will also oversee the operations, maintenance and service of the machines for a period of two years.

“PowerWorks is excited to join Suzlon in bringing two new wind projects to the market,” says Rick Koebbe, president of PowerWorks. “These projects demonstrate PowerWorks’ commitment to competitive wind energy and to the continued build-out of our development pipeline.”

Tulsi Tanti, chairman of Suzlon Energy Ltd., adds, “We have a strong focus on the U.S. market, as it offers a favorable renewable energy environment and federal policy framework moving in the right direction. We look forward in welcoming PowerWorks to the Suzlon Group.”

PowerWorks will start taking delivery of the wind turbines in summer 2015.
