The seeds of Suzlon were sown by Mr. Tulsi Tanti’s venture into the textile industry. Faced with soaring power costs and the infrequent availability of power, he looked to wind energy as an alternative. Beginning with a wind farm project in the Indian state of Gujarat in 1995, with a capacity of just 3 MW - he set forth to acquire the basic technology and varied expertise to set up Suzlon Energy Limited - India’s first home-grown wind technology company.
- Over 26,000 MW of installations across the world
- Ranked 6th leading wind power equipment* manufacturer
- Earned a global cumulative market share of 4.9%*
Suzlon in India has a cumulative installed base of over 8500 MW across 8 states, acquired over 40% (as on December 2014) cumulative market share and is the market leader for the last 15 consecutive years.
