Sembcorp Energy India, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Singapore-based independent power producer (IPP) Sembcorp, on Wednesday announced the successful completion of its three wind power projects with a total capacity of 800 megawatt (MW).
The projects were auctioned by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) and with this, Sembcorp became the first IPP to fully commission its projects awarded in the first three wind auctions held by SECI.
“These were the first wind projects that were awarded by competitive auctions and reverse bidding. The process was quite grueling, but it was very transparent, and it was a game changer. With this 800 MW capacity completion, India has shown that the SECI bidding and implementation strategy has worked, and can deliver the goods,” said Vipul Tuli, managing director, Sembcorp Energy India, at a virtual conference today.
