Sembcorp Industries has landed a 180 megawatt wind power project in India from the recent 11th nationwide wind-power auction held by the Solar Energy Corp. of India (SECI), the Singapore-listed energy and infrastructure company said in a filing to SGX Friday.
“Winning the 180MW SECI wind power project is an endorsement of our competitiveness and capabilities in renewable energy. This project moves us closer towards our brown-to-green transformation, as we target a focused growth in our renewables portfolio,” Wong Kim Yin, group president and CEO of Sembcorp Industries, said in the statement.
The project brings Sembcorp’s total capacity of installed and under construction renewable energy capacity in India to more than 2.3 gigawatts, the company said.
In addition, including the contract, Sembcorp has a renewable portfolio of more than 3.5 gigawatts in operation and under development across Singapore, China, India, Vietnam and the U.K., marking progress on the company’s 2025 target of 10 gigawatts of gross installed renewable energy capacity, the filing said.
For the latest project, Sembcorp Industries’ wholly owned renewable subsidiary in India, Green Infra Wind Energy Ltd., received the letter of award from SECI to develop the project, proposed for Karnataka state in Southwest India, the filing said.
Once the project is complete, the power output will be sold to SECI under a 25-year long-term power purchase deal, Sembcorp said.
