Series of acquisition

Suzlon had acquired Aalok and Shreyas Solarfarms along with three other solar companies (Gale Solarfarms, Tornado Solarfarms and Abha Solarfarms) in the year 2016 to implement various renewable energy projects across the country, including the 70 MW solar projects in Maharashtra. These companies, which were acquired at face value, did not have any operations or assets at the time and were acquired primarily to be used as special-purpose vehicles for the proposed solar project.
