Suzlon Energy Plans New Manufacturing Plants in India

Oct. 9 (Bloomberg) — Suzlon Energy Ltd., the Indian wind-turbine maker undergoing debt reorganization, plans to build new
manufacturing plants in central India.

The factories would support 2,000 megawatts of wind-farm
orders that Suzlon expects to win in Madhya Pradesh state in the
next five years, Chairman Tulsi Tanti told an investor summit in
Indore today, according to an e-mailed statement.

In July, Tanti said Suzlon also intends to invest as much
as $50 million in a 400-megawatt turbine plant in Brazil by the
end of 2015.

The Pune-based company, which committed India’s biggest
convertible bond default in 2012, expects to exit corporate debt
restructuring by April, Tanti said last month.
