New Delhi, Feb 5 (UNI) Country's leading wind turbine maker Suzlon Energy Ltd today said its Australian unit has secured an order from Pacific Hydro Ltd for supplying 27 wind turbines.

''The order calls for delivery of 27 units of Suzlon S88-2.1 MW wind turbines translating to 56.7 MW,'' said a company statement.

The order is scheduled for completion in early 2010, it added.

However, the financial details were not disclosed.

The project, named 'Clements Gap Wind Farm', is to be constructed in South Australia, approximately 250 kilometers north of Adelaide.

The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, and a five-year maintenance contract.

This is Pacific Hydro's first project announcement since the Australian government committed to increase renewable energy targets to 20 per cent by 2020.
