DNV GL has showcased the final reports in a study which demonstrates the commercial and technical feasibility of the offshore wind market In India. Co-funded by the European Union (EU), GPCL and ReNew Power the Facilitating Offshore Wind in India (FOWIND) project will enable organisations to make future investments in the region.
The project focused on the states of Gujarat and Tamil Nadu to identify potential zones of development through preliminary resource and feasibility assessments for future offshore wind developments, as well as through techno-commercial analysis and preliminary resource assessment. By providing a concept design for a 150 to 504MW demonstration project in both Gujarat’s and Tamil Nadu’s most promising offshore wind development areas, identified as “zone A”, companies and government institutions now have a starting point for future detailed offshore front end engineering design (FEED) studies.
