Suzlon Group, one of the leading global renewable energy solution providers, recently announced its results for the third quarter (Q3) of financial year 2015-2016 (FY16).Mr Tulsi Tanti, Chairman, Suzlon Group, said, “We continue to deliver strong revenue and profitability, and our order backlog is maintained at a healthy level. Recent Cabinet approval on the proposal for amendments in the new power tariff policy demonstrates the government’s thrust and serious action towards harnessing the renewable energy potential of our nation. We recently announced our foray into solar which is complementary to our experience in wind. At the Paris COP21, India pledged to reduce 33% Co2 by 2030 and to bring 40% renewable energy in the countries overall energy mix. This is a huge commitment to the global society and we are proud to play our part as a major contributor to this initiative as well as truly ‘make in India’ in the renewable space. Additionally, through innovative 120m hybrid tower, we have registered 35% Plant Load Factor (PLF) in a low wind regime within Gujarat. This is a testament of our in-house R&D capabilities.”

Mr. Kirti Vagadia, Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Suzlon Group, said, “We continue to deliver strong volumes and EBITDA. Our leverage and interest cost remains at lower levels as compared to last year. The additional working capital facilities sanctioned by our bankers are sufficient to fuel our business growth, enabling us to scale up volumes rapidly.”
