The New Year has brought with it major opportunities and the wind is sure blowing the Elgi way!
Elgi has consolidated its position in the Asian wind energy segment with a breakthrough order from Suzlon Energy Ltd. The order called for the installation of Elgi rotary air compressors, with capacities ranging from 126 cfm to 950 cfm, capable of meeting the compressed air application needs of Suzlon plants.
Suzlon Energy Ltd is the world’s 5th largest wind turbine manufacturer with a share of over 7.7% of the global wind energy sector. Suzlon is in the process of developing four new manufacturing plants throughout India—in Vadodara, Coimbatore, Kandla, and Padupidri. Elgi has been selected to meet the compressed air requirements in these plants.
The new order adds to the 15 Elgi compressors being installed in Suzlon plants. Elgi’s rotary screw compressors provide air solution to applications that demand tough continuous operation with very minimal downtime. The compressors will be primarily employed for sand blasting, plant maintenance and all kinds of pneumatic application. This repeat order from Suzlon’s confirms their trust and confidence in Elgi’s comprehensive compressed air solutions.
Elgi has always recognized the importance of providing efficient aftersales service and support. In order to meet the exacting service requirements of Suzlon, Elgi has also signed a five year maintenance contract.
With this turnkey order, Elgi is gaining a stronger foothold in the wind energy field in Asia–a happening industry with fast paced growth.
