calender01/02/2014

Bhubaneswar, 01/02/2014: As part of its diversification plans, National Aluminium Company Limited (NALCO), A Navratna PSU, has been foraying into other metals and energy sectors. In this context, the company has set up its 2nd Wind Power Plant at Ludarva in Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan with a capacity of 47.6 MW. NALCO has successfully commissioned this wind power project on 29th January 2014.

This Rs.283 crore Wind Power Project was executed through M/s Gamesa Wind Turbines Private Ltd., which involved erection of 56 Wind Turbines, each of 850 KW rating. In the first phase of commissioning, 36 turbines were erected. Now, in the second phase, the remaining 20 turbines have been successfully commissioned.

This is the second green initiative of NALCO towards promoting sustainable development by harnessing the unconventional and renewable energy sources, which would credit the company with incentives from the Government.

Earlier, the company commissioned its first Wind Power Plant of 50.4 MW capacity at a cost of Rs.274 crore at Gandikota in Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh, in December, 2012.

Besides, the company is also planning to set up the third wind power plant in its own mined out area of Panchpatmali Bauxite deposit in Koraput.
