Shares of Suzlon Energy, world's fifth-largest wind turbine supplier, has gone up about 21% on Thursday, after its unit REpower Systems received order for setting up a 350 MW wind farm at Quebec in Canada.
On BSE, Suzlon Energy shares touched an intraday high of Rs 25.65. The shares were closed at Rs 24.5, up by 15%.
"Suzlon Group company REpower Systems SE has signed a contract with EDF EN Canada, a unit of EDF Energies Nouvelles, for the delivery of 175 turbines of 2 MW each for a project in Quebec, Canada. With a total rated output of 350 MW the Riviere-du-Moulin wind farm will be the biggest project in the history of REpower," the company statement said.
However, the financial details of the order were not disclosed in the statement.
The contract is part of the framework agreement of up to 954 MW signed between EDF EN and REpower in 2009.
Early this week, the market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) had disposed of case against Suzlon Energy, its chairman Tulsi Tanti and other executives after the company has settles charges related to alleged violation of insider trading norms.
