Suzlon Energy submits DPR for Rs 600-cr wind power project

After a long delay, Suzlon Energy Ltd has submitted the Detailed Project Report (DPR) to the Orissa government for a 99 MW wind power plant at Damanjodi in Koraput district to be set up at a cost of around Rs 600 crore.

The company submitted the DPR after the state government cracked the whip on it for inordinate delay in submitting the report.

The gross potential for wind power in the state has been estimated at 1700 MW while the technical potential is assessed at 800 MW by the Union ministry of new and renewable energy.

The Orissa Renewable Energy Development Agency (OREDA) is carrying out wind resource assessment in 22 different sites to ascertain the actual potential on ground and the exact locations where the wind turbines can be installed.

The results will be analyzed and vetted by the Centre for Wind Energy Technology before concerted efforts are made to harness wind power in a big way.

The government has also submitted proposals to the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) for eight solar power projects in the state, each with a capacity of 1 MW and these projects are likely to be approved soon.
