Sembcorp unit wins second wind power auction in India

IN a back-to-back win, Sembcorp's renewable energy business, Sembcorp Green Infra, was awarded a 250 MW project in India's second nationwide wind power tender.

The project is expected to be developed in phases, and targeted to be fully commissioned by the first half of 2019.

Once the project is completed, its entire power output will be sold to Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) under a 25-year long-term power purchase agreement. The project will be connected to India's Central Transmission Utility and will supply power to multiple states.

Vipul Tuli, chief executive officer and country head of Sembcorp India, said: "This new renewable energy project is in line with Sembcorp's strategy to make our energy business in the country stronger and more sustainable. It also reinforces our commitment to India, and to playing a role in powering the country's continued progress."

Market voices on:

In April this year, Sembcorp Green Infra announced that it had won a bid for the first wind power project in India with close to 250 MW in capacity.

The company has over 4,000 MW of power capacity in operation and under development in the country, comprising both thermal and renewable energy assets.

Sembcorp also has wind, solar and biomass energy as well as energy-from-waste projects in Singapore, China, India and the UK.
