Suzlon Energy Ltd. has entered into an agreement with the company's China-operations subsidiary, Suzlon Energy Ltd. (SETL), and Inner Mongolia North Longyuan Wind Power Corp., for 100 MW of wind turbine capacity.

The order calls for the delivery of a total of 80 units of Suzlon's S64 1.25 MW turbine, in two lots of 50 MW each, for delivery in 2010 and 2011.

Financial details were not disclosed, but Suzlon's chief operating officer, Sumant Sinha, indicated that the project was funded by the World Bank.

"This World Bank-funded order clearly underlines Suzlon’s value proposition in terms of its technology, product and people," says Sinha. "China is one of the world’s fastest-growing wind energy markets, and we have a long-standing presence in the country, with dedicated manufacturing facilities in Tianjin focused on the local market."

The project site, located in China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous region, is characterized by subzero temperatures in the winter. Suzlon has strong capabilities in designing wind turbines to operate in harsh and variable climates, and has built up considerable experience in successfully installing and operating wind projects in some of the most extreme environments, according to the company.
