Sembcorp Energy India Limited (SEIL) and Suzlon Group has announced the completion of the first SECI wind power project in India.
The wind power project was dedicated to the nation by Minister of State (IC) for Power and New & Renewable Energy, Raj Kumar Singh at the second Global RE-INVEST summit.
Sembcorp Green Infra Limited won this project in the first round of wind bids conducted by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) on behalf of the Government of India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) in April 2017.
Sembcorp’s 250 MW project is the first wind power project, under the first reverse wind auctions in India, with the entire capacity completed ahead of the SECI timelines. Suzlon is the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) partner for the project.
The wind project located at Chandragiri in Tamil Nadu consists of 119 units of Suzlon’s 2.1 MW S111-120m Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs). Under long term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) between Sembcorp and Power Trading Corporation (PTC), power generated from the project will be supplied to the states of Jharkhand, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi.
