Suzlon submits DPR for wind power project in Orissa
Suzlon Energy has submitted the much-delayed detailed project report (DPR) to Orissa for setting up a 99 MW wind power plant at Damanjodi in Koraput at a cost of around Rs 600 crore. The state has a gross potential for wind power of 1,700 MW while the technical potential is assessed at 800 MW by the union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. The Orissa Renewable Energy Development Agency (OREDA) was in the process of carrying out wind resource assessment in 22 different sites to ascertain the actual potential on ground and the exact locations where the wind turbines can be installed.
The government has also submitted proposals to the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) for eight solar power projects in the state, each with a capacity of 1 MW and these projects are likely to be approved soon.
