Sembcorp Energy India Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore-based Sembcorp Industries, has announced completion of its 800 MW wind energy projects in India.

Sembcorp Energy India Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore-based Sembcorp Industries, has announced completion of its 800 MW wind energy projects in India.

The wind projects were awarded to Sembcorp under the first, second, and third auctions conducted by Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI). The company was awarded 250 megawatts of wind capacity under the first SECI auction, whereas 250 megawatts and 300 megawatts, respectively, were awarded to the company under the second and third SECI auctions.

With the commissioning of its 300 MW wind project, the company has become the first independent wind energy producer to commission the entire capacity awarded under all three auctions of SECI. It is also has the largest operational wind portfolio under the SECI auctions.

Last year, Sembcorp Industries infused Rs 251 crore (US$33.5 million) in its Indian subsidiary Sembcorp Energy India to enable the latter to implement these projects.

The 250 megawatt project under the first auction was installed in the Chandragiri district of Tamil Nadu. The other two projects of 250 megawatts and 300 megawatts under the second and third SECI auctions were commissioned in the Bhuj district of Gujarat.

The company said that all its wind assets can provide enough energy to power more than 600,000 homes and offset 2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually. The Indian Union power and renewable energy minister R.K. Singh has dedicated the three wind projects to the nation via video conferencing.

Sembcorp had entered the Indian market in 2011 and since then company is actively taking part in renewable energy auctions. The company has its presence across nine states of India. Sembcorp owns and operates total of 35 assets with the cumulative capacity of 4,370 megawatts including 1,730 megawatts of renewable energy projects. The company is reportedly planning to sell its stake in its thermal power projects.
