Before Suzlon Energy, Tulsi Tanti was into a business that dealt with textiles which he started and used to run in Gujarat. He later realised that there was not much scope because of problems related to infrastructure. The major set backs were cost and non-availability of power. They made up the major proportion of expenses required for operating a textile firm.
When Tulsi Tanti got two wind mills in 1990, he came to know about its big prospective. He slowly gave up his textile business and jumped into the formation of a new company called Suzlon Energy.
Suzlon Energy Limited is Asia’s largest and world’s 6th biggest company that deals with wind energy. The company is now making a wind park which will be counted amongst the largest in the world.
Suzlon Energy is currently eyeing on expansion in the global markets. Belgium based Hansen Transmissions International NV that makes wind turbine gearboxes was sometimes back acquired by the company.
A rotating blade factory was built by Suzlon Energy in Minnesota and investment amounting to 60 million dollars have already been invested by the company in Tianjin, China.
Making India an export hub of wind power is the dream of Tulsi Tanti.
