Executing projects ahead of time
In October 2018, SEIL’s 100% subsidiary SGIL, completed its 250 MW SECI-1 wind power project in Tamil Nadu. The project was the first one to be completed fully amongst the wind power projects that were auctioned in different rounds of Central wind projects auctions, conducted by Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) under the aegis of Union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. It was awarded by SECI on behalf of India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) in April 2017.
The project is aligned to India’s commitment to installing more power generation capacity based on clean sources.
In the SECI-1 project, SEIL through its subsidiary has entered into long-term agreement with Power Trading Corporation of India to generate and supply renewable power to the states of Jharkhand, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi. The project consisted of 119 units of Suzlon’s 2.1 MW S111-120m Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs). It is estimated that the project will light up more than 216,000 homes and reduce CO2 emissions by over 700,000 tonnes per annum.
