It aligns with our target of growing our renewable portfolio and fits well with our long-term commitment to India’s energy transition,” Vipul Tuli – CEO of South Asia, Sembcorp Industries, said in the statement.

With this win, Sembcorp Industries, the Singapore parent company of the Sembcorp India, would have a renewables portfolio of more than 3.5GW in operation and under development across Singapore, China, India, Vietnam and the UK.
