Mumbai, India — ESI-AFRICA.COM — 03 August 2011 – Indian wind turbine maker Suzlon Energy aims to grow its global market share to between 9 and 10% this year from 7% last year.

Stating this in an interview with Reuters here, Suzlon chairperson and managing director Tulsi Tanti said it would grow faster than the wind industry growth rate of 15% in coming years, and the growth would be driven by Europe, emerging markets and the offshore turbine segment.

“As part of its growth plans, the company is also considering setting up a manufacturing facility in South Africa next year,” he said.

Suzlon “’ the world’s fifth-largest wind-turbine maker, under pressure for nearly two years because of slowing sales and rising interest costs on its huge debts “’ last week posted a second consecutive quarterly profit.
