Suzlon to export China-made wind turbines next year

Dalian: Indian wind turbine maker Suzlon could begin exporting Chinese-assembled turbines to third countries as early as next year, the chairman of the company said on Thursday.

With the company expecting a 40% increase in global revenue this fiscal year, Suzlon is also seeking a Chinese joint-venture partner to produce large turbines in China for the Chinese market, Tulsi Tanti said in an interview at the World Economic Forum in Dalian.

Suzlon, the world’s fifth-largest wind turbine manufacturer, builds 2-megawatt wind turbines in Tianjin and exports components from China for their assembly at the company’s facilities in India, the United States and Germany.
