Why Suzlon Energy Shares Are Up By 5% On Wednesday

Suzlon Energy shares surged close to 5% on early Wednesday after its recent announcement about an order from 2018. Suzlon and Avikiran Solar India Pvt. Ltd. have jointly scaled down a project in Kutch, Gujarat from its original 285 MW to 168 MW.

What Happened? Back in May 2018, Suzlon secured several orders, one of which was a 285 MW wind power project in Kutch from Avikiran Solar. This order came under a Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI 4) bid.

“This is to inform that due to the devastating impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic and the resultant disruption of the global supply chain, the parties have decided to downsize the project limiting to 168 MW,” Suzlon Energy said in a BSE filing on Wednesday.

According to the deal, Suzlon will deliver 64 of its largest wind turbines, each with a capacity of 3.15 MW, for this project.
