Inox Wind has received an order from NTPC Renewable Energy Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of NTPC Limited, for a 150 MW wind power project to be built in Gujarat. This, along with a slew of other projects, will help NTPC meet its goal of having over 60 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2032, accounting for approximately half of the company’s total power producing capacity. The project will be completed on a turnkey basis at the Dayapar site in Gujarat’s Kutch District and is expected to be operational by April 2023.
As per a company statement, Inox Wind will provide and install DF 113/92 – 2.0 MW wind turbine generators with a rotor diameter of 113 metres and a hub height of 92 metres. The project will be completed on a plug-and-play basis with a shorter gestation period because common infrastructure facilities such as the 220 KV pooling substation at Dayapar and the extra high voltage transmission line have already been commissioned. Inox Wind will also offer complete operation and maintenance (O&M) for the duration of the project as part of the contract.
