Indian wind farm operator Mytrah Energy Ltd (LON:MYT) said Monday it has put into operation the 18.9-MW second phase of its 50-MW wind power project in Bhesada, Rajasthan state.
The commissioning of the nine turbines comes several weeks after the company wrapped up the 16.8-MW phase one of the scheme. All 24 units of 2.1-MW turbines supplied by domestic manufacturer Suzlon Energy Ltd are expected to be completed before the 2016 wind season, according to the statement.
Including the latest addition, Mytrah's wind portfolio now amounts to 578 MW in total, some 50.2 MW of which were added this year, the firm calculates. Looking forward, the company expects to start the 2016 wind season with 743 MW of wind parks in operation.
“With funding in place for 250 MW, and considerable progress made already, we are well placed to deliver the planned 200 MW before the 2016 wind season,” chairman and CEO Ravi Kailas noted.
As for in the solar sector, Mytrah commissioned three rooftop arrays in 2015 and holds the development rights over a 50-MW project in Punjab.
