SECI auctions 2 GW of wind power capacity

SECI has auctioned 2 GW capacity of ISTS-connected wind power projects under Tranche IV. The capacity was tendered by SECI in February 2018. The tariffs quoted in the auction range from Rs 2.51 per kWh to Rs 2.67 per kWh. The lowest (L1) tariff of Rs 2.51 per kWh has been quoted by six bidders for an aggregate capacity of 1,435 MW. These are Srijan Energy Systems (250 MW), Sprng Energy (300 MW), BLP Energy (285 MW), Betam Energy (200 MW), Inox Wind (100 MW) and Adani Green Energy (300 MW). This is 2.9 per cent more than the L1 tariff quoted in SECI’s Tranche III wind auction. A tariff of Rs 2.52 per kWh has been quoted by Mytrah Energy and ReNew Wind Energy to win projects worth 300 MW and 265 MW respectively.
