Suzlon Energy Limited broke new ground with its first order in South America.
The major order from Brazilian energy company - SIIF Energies do Brasil Ltda (SIIF) SIIF, owned by the Spain-based Jantus Ltda, has spent over five years developing a portfolio of projects in the highly attractive wind area of the North East of Brazil.
