Adani Wind Commissions 150 MW Project 9 months before Schedule

Adani Wind Energy Kutchh Three Limited (AWEKTL), a subsidiary of Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL), has announced the commissioning of a 150 MW Wind Power Project located in Kutchh, Gujarat, 9 months ahead of its Schedule. This is the 6th project commissioned before schedule by the company over the past 12 months. Wind Energy projects have been a particularly quick execution from the firm. That will easily be a record of sorts, which will stand for some tie, considering the challenging situation faced by the sector in the past 15 months due to the covid pandemic and related disruptions.

The project has a 25 years Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) at Rs. 2.82/kwh. It seems to have been part of its project win from SECI’s Tranche VI ISTS connected Wind Energy win.

With this commissioning,  AGEL’s total operational renewable capacity moves to 5,070 MW. The firm has a stated ambition to get to 25 GW capacity by 2025, a number it looks set to achieve well before its target date, thanks to a slew of recent acquisitions too. AGEL has total renewable capacity of 24,294 MW(1&2) (including asset under acquisition & projects where AGEL has emerged as L1 bidder). With this 150 MW, AGEL has added total operational renewable capacity of 2,525 MW (including 1,750 MW of operational assets under acquisition) during the challenging COVID-19 outbreak.

In terms of wind energy,  AGEL has an operational wind generation capacity of 647 MW now.

Like all its other assets, operations and maintainance (O&M) for the newly commissioned plant will be managed in house  Energy Network Operation Centre (ENOC) platform that gives AGEL complete centralized visibility and an ability to manage its renewables assets on pan India basis. AGEL is one of the large developers in India that have so far gone with its own O&M on renewable assets.
