Adani Green Energy has commissioned 50 MW wind generation capacity in Kutch, a part of the 725 MW wind projects then firm is implementing in the region
Adani Green Energy Ltd (AGEL) has announced through a corporate filing that it has commissioned 50 megawatts (MW) wind generation capacity in Kutch, Gujarat. The capacity commissioned is a part of the larger 725 MW wind projects that the firm is implementing in the region through its subsidiaries.
“AGEL announces commissioning of 50 MW wind energy generation capacity and signing of a power purchase agreement with Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) for a period of 25 years,” a company statement said.
The company plans to commission another 225 MW wind capacity in the area by the second half of 2020, for which the evacuation infrastructure is already in place, it added.
AGEL has partially charged the evacuation infrastructure for connecting its wind projects of 725 MW capacity.
“The evacuation infrastructure connects the plant end pooling sub-station (Ratadia PSS) of the wind projects to the Bhuj Pool Sub Station of PGCIL at 220 KV level through 59 km double circuit transmission lines,” it said.
While the Ratadia PSS has been partially charged to the extent of 300 MW evacuation capacity, the balance capacity shall be charged, in sync with the planned commissioning schedule of the wind projects over the next 15 months, the statement revealed.
Recently, we reported that Inox Wind had closed a deal for sale of a 50 MW wind power project at Dayapar, Kutch in the state of Gujarat in which Adani Green Energy will be the strategic investor. The firm has revealed that the said project is part of the capacity won under the SECI bids for wind power projects connected on the central grid.
Previously the firm, apart from the above, had already commissioned wind projects worth a cumulative 166 MW for Adani. And this new deal has been signed by Adani reposing their confidence in Inox Wind. As part of this deal, Inox will also provide long term operations and maintenance services for the wind energy plant.
In January, the Inox had received a Letter of Intent (LOI) from Adani Green Energy to develop its wind project. The company announced that building on its strong partnership with Adani Green Energy in the renewables sector, it will now supply, erect and commission Adani’s 501.6 MW of wind power projects, across projects that the energy giant won under SECI auctions. The project is scheduled to be executed over the next 12 months at Kutch District in Gujarat.
