Suzlon in Gujarat: Partnerships forsustainable development
The western Indian state of Gujarat is among the nation’s leading centers of industrial development. The people of the state have a long standing reputation forentrepreneurship and pioneering new industry. Few companies demonstrate thismore vividly than Suzlon – which, born in 1995 inAhmedabad.
Powering Gujarat’s economy:
It is also not surprising that Gujarat has been at the forefrontof development of wind energy in the country, with over1,000 MW of wind turbine capacity installed across the state.
Strong Winds:
With long coastline, and asupporting topography – thestate offers a consistent windregime highly suited for utilityscale wind farm operations. Thestate has a highly diversified economy, with a healthymix of agricultural, industrial and domestic electricity consumption. Gujarat hasgrown at an average of 10% a year for the past five years, outshining the nationaleconomy and also bringing with it a proportional increased demand for power.In this scenario, wind has proved itself to be a valuablepart of the sustainable future of Gujarat. The state haswell planned policy frameworks supporting the growth of renewable energy, and has taken the lead in developingassets with over 1414.70 MW already installed by 30 Sep2008– of which Suzlon has installed 767.44 MW.
Policy Supports:
 It is important to note that in theIndian model, the governmenthas almost never been a directinvestor in renewable energy, only providing policy andincentive mechanisms to encourage the uptake of wind andother forms of non-conventional energy. However, thesupport measures put in place by Gujarat’s government andadministration have played in driving the growth of windenergy in the state. A supportive power purchaseframework assuring the investor a Rs. 3.37 per unit of electricity produced, wheeling and banking facilities, rapidapprovals and clearances for projects have all played a big part in making Gujaratone of India’s leaders in the wind energy space.
The Kutch Windfarm was originally conceptualized way back in 2002 and preliminaryproject activities commenced in early 2003. The region offered several keyadvantages for the establishment of a very large scale windfarm. The costal

topography made for consistent wind conditions, and the land was primarily non-agricultural due to the salinity of the soil caused by the proximity to the coast. Thearea was largely underdeveloped, making it an ideal destination for a wind project,which would attract further industry after it and generate direct and indirectemployment.The Government of Gujarat also extended support to Suzlon by signing of two MoU,under the aegis of the ‘Vibrant Gujarat’ initiative. One of this MOU was signed in theyear 2003 specifically for the development of the Kutch wind farm project.
The Project:
The Suzlon developed windfarm in Kutch is without a doubt the largest such venturein the state – and in fact, all the way across Asia. Kutch recently overtook theSuzlon-developed windfarm in Dhule, Maharashtra, crossing655 MW of installed capacity and seizing the mantle of Asia’slargest windfarm project. The wind farm features a mix of Suzlon’s entire product portfolio with a mix of 600KW,1250KW, 1500KW, 2100KW turbines installed.Suzlon has set aim for an even higher target –an ultimatecapacity of 1,500 MW, among the worlds largest, and Asia’slargest by far.
Giving Back to Society:
Suzlon has consistently built on apartnership approach in everyproject and endeavor it hasundertaken, from offices, tomanufacturing facilities towindfarms – building synergisticrelations with the community itoperates in.Suzlon has embarked on a multi-pronged strategy in Kutchpartnering with several non-governmental organizations todrive programs in civic amenities,health and livelihood. Thesecover projects as diverse asfunding for schools, decentralizeddrinking water program, ruralhealth referral services and supporting textile and leather crafts.---
