Suzlon Signs 332-Megawatt North Sea Turbine Deal With PNE

March 27 (Bloomberg) -- Suzlon Energy Ltd., India’s largest wind-turbine maker, will deliver 332 megawatts of offshore turbines to a German North Sea project being developed by PNE Wind AG.

Suzlon’s Repower Systems SE agreed to supply 54 turbines to the Gode Wind I wind farm 35 kilometers (22 miles) north of the Frisian Islands, Pune-based Suzlon said today in a web statement. No terms were disclosed.

Companies including Alstom SA and Siemens AG are developing 6-megawatt offshore wind turbines as nations including France and the U.K. seek to reduce costs of the energy-saving technology. Germany is targeting 10 gigawatts of wind power in its seas by 2020 from about 200 megawatts now while the U.K. plans to reach 18 gigawatts by the same year.

Repower has sold 150 of its 6.15-megawatt offshore machines to date including to Gode Wind, according to the statement. The facility, developed by Cuxhaven, Germany-based PNE Wind, will generate enough power for 324,000 homes when built, Suzlon said in the statement. The project will be commissioned in 2015, according to Suzlon.
