“Considering that the group is in the business of Manufacturing of Wind Turbine Generator which falls under the Renewable Energy sector being the priority sector, the management believes that the impact of this (pandemic) outbreak on the business and financial position of the group will not be significant. The management does not see any risks in the group’s ability to continue as a going concern and meeting its liabilities as and when they fall due,” the company stated.

The firm also reported that the execution of the Continuum project (250 MW) is in full swing and commissioning of turbines will take place progressively in the near future. The firm has also commissioned Renew Power‘s 18 MW project at Anjar, in Gujarat along with some small retail orders.

The firm has also stated that it has achieved financial closure for an un-commissioned 100 MW project of SECI SPVs with PFC. This will enable the firm to free up significant short term capital blocked in a 50 MW un-commissioned SPV.

Furthermore, the firm has reported that all future project executions at Dayapar (Gujarat) including the Continuum order will be on a plug-and-play basis given the common infrastructure which includes the 220 KV transmission line, the 220 kV substation and bay are already in place.
