CLP India said that it has signed a pact with the Rajasthan Government for a 102.4-MW wind power project. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of the CLP Group, which is listed on the Hong Stock Exchange.

The wind farm will use 800 kW gearless turbines designed for medium to low-wind speed sites. The turbines are from Enercon. The project is expected to be commissioned by December 2012.

CLP India said the technology is already being used in its earlier projects built by Enercon. This project marks CLP India’s third wind power project in Rajasthan and the ninth in India.

Mr Mahesh Makhija, Director-Renewables Business Development, CLP India, said with this new project, CLP India’s wind power portfolio has grown to about 740 MW.  This portfolio is spread across Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.
