Wind Projects - India

The main purpose of this project activity is to generate a clean form of electricity through a renewable wind energy source.

Bothe Windfarm Development Pvt. Ltd. is the promoter of the proposed project activity. The Project has 40 Wind Turbines of individual capacity 2MW each and 57 Wind Turbines of individual capacity 2.1 MW each in Maharashtra state of India. The total project capacity is 199.7 MW.

The project is a new facility, and it plans to utilize wind energy to generate electricity and supply it to distribution licences which is a part of the NEWNE (Northern, Eastern, Western and North-Eastern) grid of India. In the absence of project activity, a quantity of the electricity that would be delivered by the project activity to the NEWNE grid would be sourced from the existing grid-connected power plants and future capacity additions to meet the growing electricity requirements. Thus, the project activity reduces the dependency on fossils fuels which are predominantly used for electricity generation in India and helps reduction of climate change impacts.

The project activity is expected to supply 372.791 GWh of energy to the NEWNE Grid of India each year. This is expected to result in emission reductions of 364,217 tCO2e per year of operation.

Powerica Limited is the largest Genset manufacturer in India. Founded in 1980, it is the project developer of this the wind power project.

Effective utilization of resources has been a guiding factor for Powerica towards conceptualization of a 9.9 MW wind power project. This project aims to provide electricity to the state electricity grid through effective utilization of renewable resource which, in the case of the project activity, is wind power.

The main purpose of the project activity is to generate electrical energy through sustainable means using wind power resources and to contribute to climate change mitigation efforts. In the absence of the project activity, the electricity thus supplied would have been generated through fossil fuel based thermal power plants. The project activity thus contributes to reduction in specific emissions (emissions of pollutant) including GHG emissions.

The project activity is also responsible for sustainable economic growth and conservation of the environment through use of wind as a renewable source.

The project activity involves a total installation of 6 Wind Turbine Generators (WTG) of total generating capacity of 9.9 MW (6 units of Vestas make V82 WTG). The WTG units will be installed in Theni district of the state of Tamilnadu.
