Power 20:20 | CLP India

Highest growth generation company in the last year (private company - wind power) : CLP India

CLP India is one of the largest wind power developers in India with close to 1,000 MW of committed wind projects. The wind portfolio of the company that made a beginning with its first project in Khandke in the year 2006, has grown rapidly since then and is an integral part of CLP India┬┤s renewable portfolio.

Investment in the renewable energy sector is driven by the Group's strategy of reducing the carbon footprint of the business by moving away from reliance on conventional coal-fired generation and increasing the share of non-carbon emitting in its portfolio to 30 per cent by 2020 as prescribed in the Group's climate strategy. This apart, CLP is also reviewing the prospects of investing in other wind, solar, biomass, and other renewable energy projects.

Key Success Factors

  • Long-term generation capacity: CLP has committed investments of 2,900 MW of power and is one of the largest wind power IPPs in the country; the company also has extensive presence in international markets.
  • Fuel supply: The company signed a fuel supply agreement with Central Coalfields Limited for a 20-year term and with a minimum supply guarantee of 80 per cent of generating requirements. CLP has made an agreement with all relevant counterparts, including the Central Electricity Agency and the Haryana Offtakers for the use of imported coal, representing up to 15 per cent of total required volumes, and for the cost of imported coal to be passed on to the offtaker. The first rake of imported coal (from Indonesia) arrived at Jhajjar on 10 November 2012 and has been successfully blended with domestic coal for generating purposes.
  • Technologies: CLP has modified its coal handling plant at Jhajjar to better deal with poor quality coal. CLP has also introduced cutting edge systems and equipment such as on-line condition monitoring devices for generators, transformers and switchgear, surge arresters for overhead lines etc.
  • CLP Wind Farms (India) Private Limited (CLP WF) is part of the CLP Group (www.clpgroup.com) and is the largest investor in wind power in India.
  • CLP WF and its associate companies currently own more than 360 MW of operational wind farms and more than 260 MW of wind farms are under construction in India.
  • CLP WF and its associated companies have more than 12 CDM projects out of which 4 are already CDM registered.
