Sembcorp Energy India (SEIL) and Suzlon Group has completed the 250 MW wind power project, which is the first among all SECI auctioned wind projects to achieve full completion 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 2nd Global RE-INVEST summit.

Sembcorp Green Infra, a fully owned subsidiary of SEIL, 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.

Moreover, Suzlon is the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) partner for the project.

This project is located at Chandragiri in Tamil Nadu consists of 119 units of Suzlon’s 2.1 MW S111-120m Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs).

AS per the 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.

Commenting on the development, Sembcorp Energy India, Managing Director, Vipul Tuli said, “The successful completion of the Chandragiri wind power project is an important milestone in Sembcorp’s journey towards providing energy to support India’s continued development and prosperity. It is a moment of pride for Sembcorp Energy India Limited and our EPC partner Suzlon, as we were able to deliver the entire project ahead of the SECI timelines. This project adds to Sembcorp’s growing renewable energy portfolio worldwide, and strengthens our collective track record in clean energy.”

“We are pleased to have achieved yet another milestone. We partnered with Sembcorp from the pre-bid stage and delivered the full capacity ahead of the SECI timelines despite the challenges, uncertainties and initial teething issues of the new bidding regime for wind,” said J.P. Chalasani, Group CEO, Suzlon Group.
