Suzlon has agreed to provide Tierra Energy, an Austin, Texas-based wind and natural gas-fired power project developer, with 42 S88-2.1 MW wind turbines for projects located in Wyoming and Texas.

The turbine agreement includes the supply of 28 S88-2.1 MW wind turbines sited for the Ocotillo Windpower Project near Big Spring, Texas. The remaining 14 turbines are designated for the Happy Jack Windpower Project located near Cheyenne, Wyo. Suzlon will ensure the effective operations, maintenance and service of the wind turbines for a period of five years, the company says.

"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," says Andris Cukurs, chief executive officer of Suzlon Wind Energy Corp., the Chicago-based subsidiary of Suzlon Energy A/S of Denmark.

Suzlon adds that the company will deliver the turbines in the spring of 2008.
