Wind Mills

A windmill is a machine which converts the energy of wind into rotational energy by means of vanes called sails or blades. Originally windmills were developed for milling grain for food production. In the course of history the windmill was adapted to many other industrial uses. An important application was to pump water. Windmills used for generating electricity are commonly known as turbines.

Using the wind to generate electricity started in the 1990s and picked up speed since then it has been a relatively fast growing industry. The short gestation periods for installing wind turbines, and the increasing reliability and performance of wind energy machines has made wind power a favored choice for capacity addition in India. Suzlon’s success has made India the developing country leader in advanced wind turbine technology.

We at Vikram group aspire to contribute in reaching the target of 10,500 MW till 2012 as set up by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).
