Wind Power Value Chain

...developing at excellent speed, but the suppliers that had the right expertise, facilities and capacity to deliver on increasingly challenging orders have been thin on the ground. 5 With supply chain bottlenecks a constant threat, many of the large wind firms have responded by buying out suppliers of critical components such as blades, generators, and gearboxes. By bringing suppliers in house, they could ensure they would get the products they needed on time, and at an acceptable price. Vertical integration of the supply chain has been a gradual process over the last decade. Today, most turbine manufacturers make their own blades, after a rush to bring them in-house four or five years ago. OEMs including Vestas, GE, Gamesa, and Suzlon also have in-house supply of generators and controllers, although they also still source some of these components from other suppliers. Vertical integration has not always been a smooth process, however. An example is Suzlon's acquisition of Hansen Transmissions (a gearbox manufacturer) in 2006 and its subsequent divestment of a large portion of its stake in the company. 2.1 Key Players in the Wind Power Development Key players with a role to play in wind energy development include: wind turbine manufacturers, dealers and distributors; wind project developers; consultants and contractors; electric utilities, government agencies; and landowners.

Suzlon Case

...Suzlon Case Analysis Qn. What are the various Risks that Suzlon was exposed to? What they could have done differently to handle the situation?  Ans. The various risk Suzlon was exposed to are: 1. Compliance Risk- In 2012 government rolled back some of the incentives casting a shadow on growth and aggravated the challenges for Suzlon that had already been struggling due to slow down in overseas market. 2. Merger and Acquisition Risk- When Suzlon acquired Repower at a price much higher than what was offered by Areva. There was a high investment risk, as it may or may not turn into fruition. 3. Financial leverage Risk- The acquisition was to be financed through debt, this increased the financial liabilities leading to the increase of financial leverage. 4. Foreign exchange risk- As the bonds issued were US dollar dominated, this increased the foreign exchange risk as dollar rate in future will define the payment terms. 5. Economic Risk- The global economic crisis in 2008 led to a tight credit situation, this hurt Suzlon because it purchased Repower at high valuations. 6. Competitors Risk- The competition from companies such as Enercon. ReGen, Gamesa and Vestas led to the decline of its market share in India. 7. Regulatory Risk- The CDR standing forum was a representative general body. It laid down policies and guidelines to be followed by the empowered group and CDR cell for debt restructuring. These regulators control the mechanism of CDR and any changes in......

Suzlon Case Study

...Suzlon Case Study University’s Name: Submitted by Names: Tutor Date Introduction The wind energy sector has attained a high-level attention and acceptability in the contemporary renewable global market compared to other sources. The year 2014 marked the highest growth rate by 11% with 50GW annual installation for the first time. It was a record high of 99.5 billion in the same year rising from the previous 80.3 billion in 2013. India to be specific ranks the fourth globally in wind energy uptake with an installed capacity of 6018 MW. The wind energy sector is expected to create more jobs, fuel economic activity and extensively reduce CO2 emissions on earth. Wind power is now becoming the best option for power companies in adding capacity to a grid since it is attributed to low costs (Global Wind Energy Outlook, 2014, pp. 12). According to the information, the sector reflects an amiable growth in the coming years however, the energy industry in its entirety has many challenges since parties come up with new and costs effective forms of energy. The research paper begins by holistically analyzing the major challenges and opportunities facing the global wind energy industry and their strategic implications, using porter’s five forces model. The porter’s five forces model serves to analyze the competitive forces in the industry to identify opportunities and threats. The analysis covers five facets namely the risk of entry by new competitors, intensity of rivalry......

Disruptive Innovation in Emerging Markets: Strategies Used

...2009). Sulzon: Wind Turbine Started 16 years ago, Suzlon, India’s major wind power provider has become the world’s fifth largest wind turbine manufacturer with a market share of 6%. Suzlon’s founder, Tulsi Tanti, moved into the wind power business by chance. Unhappy with the erratic power supplies and rising energy costs at his textile mill in Gujarat, India, Tanti set up two windmills in 1990 with turbines imported from the German company Suedwind. He soon discovered that although they could not provide the capacity of conventional power generators, the windmills provided a reliable source of cheap energy, much cheaper than conventional energy, the costs of which kept rising. They were also environmentally friendly. Understanding the business potential of his                                                              5  Source:‐launches‐swach‐water‐filters.html  1 5    discovery, Tanti exited his textile business and set up Suzlon Energy in 1995 with a modest capital of $600,000. Suzlon’s strategy has been to capitalize on India’s low manufacturing costs and provide end-to-end customized solutions at affordable prices to its Indian industrial clients. When Suzlon’s initial turbine supplier, Suedwind, folded due to financial difficulties in 1997, Suzlon bought the failed company, retaining its R&D center and turbine manufacturing facilities in Germany. Suzlon also acquired a rotor-blade manufacturer......

...Executive summary Suzlon, the Indian-owned Wind Energy company, has made its mark in the Indian and Global Wind Energy markets since its inception in 1995. By 2011, the company was the Asian market leader, having completed projects across 32 countries around the globe. Tulsi Tanti, originally a textile manufacturer founded Suzlon in 1995 to meet the energy demands of his family business textile operations. In those days, India was marred by expensive and unpredictable power grids which lead to rising power costs and frequent electricity outages. In 1994, the Government of India announced incentives for those investing in Wind power. As a part of the scheme the Ministry of non-conventional Energy resources offered capital subsidies and waivers from excise, income and import taxes for renewable energy projects. Tanti saw a promising opportunity and raised $0.6 million for his new wind energy venture. He began by securing selling rights from “SudWind”, the German turbine manufacturer, in India for their turbines. However, in an unexpected turn of events the German company went bankrupt. Determined not to lose this opportunity, Mr Tanti purchased the Worldwide rights to sell SudWind turbines – hiring the manufacturer’s R&D centre in Germany. Their first project was a ten turbines wind farm for India Power Corporation Limited(IPCL), a petrochemicals company. Suzlon’s successful completion of the project in a record three months helped it build its name. Soon, other......
