The Indian Government has signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) with a group of public and private companies to develop an offshore wind farm in the coast of Gujarat.

The project will be the first offshore wind farm in India. The team of partners will form a Joint Venture Company (JVC) to carry out the project. The JVC will undertake detailed feasibility study based on the inputs received from pre-feasibility studies and necessary steps for implementation of the first offshore demonstration wind power project. The first planned demonstration offshore wind power project along the Gujarat coast will be of about 100MW capacity. It has been proposed to provide subsidy for setting up of evacuation and transmission infrastructure of the offshore wind power to the main land including financial support for carrying out studies such as wind resource assessment, Environment Impact Assessment (EIA), oceanographic survey and Bathymetric studies.
