Suzlon to open plant in Africa

Silas Zimu, chief executive officer of Suzlon’s South African business, has confirmed to the Bloomberg wire service that the company is currently searching for a suitable location. The plant will manufacture towers and rotor blades for the South African market.
South Africa is increasingly trying to meet its rising energy demand through the use of renewable energy. In August of last year, South Africa awarded contracts to build power plants with a total capacity of 3,725 MW. Suzlon has submitted a tender for the 135 MW Cookhouse wind farm, and is hoping to be awarded the contract in March or April, according to Zimu.
