Suzlon Group has acquired Big Sky Wind Park in US from Edison Mission Energy, the company said today.

"Suzlon Group, through its wholly-owned subsidiary SWECO, has successfully acquired Big Sky Wind Park from Edison Mission Energy," the company said in a statement.

The wind park consisting of 114 turbines is located in Illinois, US.

"We are pleased to have worked with our long-time customer Edison Mission on this transaction," SWECO CEO Duncan Koerbel said.
