Suzlon Energy has said it has completed the worldwide programme for strengthening and reinforcing a certain set of blades, which suffered cracks.

Instances of blade cracks were first discovered in late 2007 in the operation of some of Suzlon’s S88 wind turbines in the United States.

Pursuant to this, a comprehensive retrofit operation was launched to safeguard 1,251 (or 417 sets) of S88-V2 blades around the world — a commitment which is worth around $100 million.

Besides, strengthening the S88-V2 blades, Suzlon has also introduced the next-generation S88-V3. One of Suzlon’s S88 turbines produces enough energy to power around 500 average American homes.
