A record amount of wind has been installed in India over the past year. Just two years ago, turbines were erected with capacity of 3.4 GW while last year saw the construction of 5.4 GW, bringing the country's total capacity up to 32 GW. This all goes to show why wind turbine manufacturers such as Gamesa, Goldwind, and Vestas are hungry to get a piece of the Indian market.

And the same is naturally true of Suzlon as well. The Indian manufacturer seems to have turned things around with two years of profits after several years of decline. This is mainly due to gains on the domestic market, and Suzlon's Chairman and Managing Director, Tulsi Tanti, predicts that this will continue over the next 12 months.
