Enel, through its Indian renewable subsidiary BLP Energy Private, has won its first ever renewable energy tender in the country with the awarding of the right to sign a 25-year energy supply contract for a 285MW wind farm in the State of Gujarat, India.
The project was awarded under the Fourth Tranche of the 2GW national wind tender issued by the government company Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI). Enel will be investing more than US$ 290 million in the construction of this wind farm, which will be supported by a contract for the sale of specified volumes of energy over a 25-year period to SECI. The project is expected to start operations in the second half of 2019.
