Suzlon Shares Jump 4% After Bagging Order From Aditya Birla Group

Suzlon‘s share price jumped back into the green after three sessions, going up around 4% to hit an intraday high of ₹46.

What Happened: The wind energy major announced on Wednesday that it will supply 175 wind turbines, each with a rated capacity of 3.15 megawatts, to the Aditya Birla Group.

The order will be executed across two sites. The first site, developed by Suzlon in the Barmer district, Rajasthan, will receive 368.55 megawatts. The second site, developed by the Aditya Birla Group in the Bhuj district, Gujarat, will receive 182.70 megawatts.

Suzlon will also be responsible for the comprehensive operations and maintenance services post-commissioning at both sites. The power generated from these wind turbines will be used for captive usage within the Aditya Birla Group companies.

A project of this magnitude can provide electricity to approximately 4.54 lakh households and curb around 17.92 lakh tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per year.
