Noida : Inox Wind, India’s leading wind energy solutions provider has bagged an order for a 200 MW wind power project from NTPC Renewable Energy Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of NTPC Limited, to be commissioned in the state of Gujarat. This amongst many more in the future will help NTPC achieve its target of having over 60 GW Renewable Energy capacity constituting nearly 50% of its overall power generation capacity by 2032. The Project will be executed on a turnkey basis at Dayapar site, Kutch District in the state of Gujarat and is scheduled to be commissioned by January 2024.
‘We are excited to bag this prestigious 200 MW project from NTPC; the largest order awarded by a PSU in the recent past. This is the second project awarded by NTPC to INOX Wind in the recent past, post a 150 MW order received last year. This reflects their immense faith in our capabilities and credentials. A few years ago, INOX Wind had also successfully executed a 50 MW turnkey wind project for NTPC in Gujarat. We hope to foster a long- term relationship with NTPC and become their trusted supplier and an enabler in achieving their ambitious renewable energy target’ Kailash Tarachandani, CEO of Inox Wind, said.
