KP energy and CLP India are collaborating to develop a 250.8 MW wind project at Dwarka in Gujarat. The project is part of the tender floated by Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited (SECI) under tranche VIII for interstate transmission system connected wind projects. As part of the arrangement with CLP India, KP Energy will be responsible for providing a turnkey balance of solution for the project, including procuring wind site locations, obtaining necessary approvals and development permits, wind data management, and other related works. The company will also take the responsibility to set up the power evacuation infrastructure comprising 220 kV dedicated lines and pooling substation at Sidhpur in Dwarka.
CLP India is a wholly owned subsidiary of China Light and Power (CLP) Holdings Limited, one of the largest investor-owned power businesses in Asia. CLP entered the Indian power market in 2002 and has since expanded its portfolio to over 3,000 MW, comprising supercritical coal, gas-fired, wind and solar power plants.
CLP’s journey in India started when it acquired a stake in the 655 MW gas-powered Paguthan combined cycle power plant (CCPP) in Bharuch, Gujarat. The plant has received NOSA 5-star accreditation for safety, an ISO 14001 certification for its environment conservation initiatives, and “NOSCAR” company status for occupational risk management. Apart from the Paguthan gas power plant, CLP India operates a 1,320 MW supercritical coal-fired power plant located in Jhajjar, Haryana.
