After having set up India’s largest wind farm a single location, wind turbine manufacturer Suzlon Energy has now planned to double the capacity of this wind farm at Jhakhau in Kutch.
The present capacity of this wind farm is 750 Mw, which Suzlon proposes to increase to 1,500 Mw. Post expansion, Jhakhau wind project would be far ahead of other large wind farms at single location in Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. “The company has already submitted its development plan to the state government and we hope to double the capacity of the wind farm in two years time,” said Harish Mehta, director, Suzlon Group.
In addition to Gujarat, Suzlon also has 350 Mw and 250 Mw wind farms at Maharashtra’s Satara and Dhule respectively.
