|Technology is the key enabler for a company to be a market leader. Suzlon's sophisticated R&D capabilities in the wind energy space have led to the development of a comprehensive product portfolio, ranging from 600 kW to 2.1 MW wind turbines. Though the dynamic increase in wind turbines ratings has slowed since 2006 wind turbine technology as such continues to be a dynamic field of research with the focus more on reliability, ease of operation and loads reduction which will enable weight and cost reductions of wind turbines. There is a strong focus on increasing the energy yield of wind turbines at a given rating by improving aerodynamics and applying larger rotors.|
The 600-strong Technology Group, led from its R&D Headquarters in Hamburg, derives its technological success from a close collaboration between the development teams in Germany, India, Denmark and China, key technological partners and research centres experienced in Wind energy such as Risø in Denmark, ECN and TU Delft in the Netherlands and Fraunhofer Gesellschaft and various technical Universities in Germany.
|Wind turbine technology in Germany and Denmark|
|Germany and Denmark are together without doubt the headquarters of pioneering engineering knowledge and application for wind technology. Active co-operation of wind energy experts, newest scientific innovations, high-end technology usage and highly qualified human resources for selection of materials and production processes make them the 'destination of choice' for Suzlon's R&D endeavours and accomplishments.|
For example Suzlon has R&D centres in Rostock, Hamburg and Berlin with over 200 employees that develop all key systems incorporated in the wind turbine nacelle, hub and tower covering electrical and mechnical systems. The controls and SCADA systems are developed in a cross-border team of Danes, Germans and Indians.
|Blade development in the Netherlands, Denmark and India|
|Well-developed fundamental and applied research, using state of the art development tools, on aerodynamics, fibre reinforced plastics (FRP) and wind turbine blade structures with support from universities, consultants, research & certifying agencies direct Suzlon's R&D centre in Netherlands and Denmark towards creating reliable products that achieve economically optimised power performance. Additionally Suzlon opened a new cutting-edge blade test facility in Baroda in 2008 that is capable of fully validating multiple blades up to 65m length to standards that far surpass prior practice and are probably now the most stringent in the industry.|
|Engineering in India|
|Suzlon drives its turbine development effort at different centres across the globe and fine tunes process engineering in India to produce some of the most efficient, robust and reliable wind turbines available in today's wind energy market. The Indian team is also responsible for supporting the operations of the global fleet through collecting data from the field 24/7, 365 days a year from a fleet of over 6000 turbines worldwide, analysing it by experts and triggering the essential development programs. To support this initiative a modern 24/7 monitoring centre is being established in Pune.|
