This project activity involves the set-up of a wind farm of 50.4 MW at Jamnagar district in the state of Gujarat, India. A total of 63 Wind Electric Generators (WEGs) of 800 kW capacity each are installed at the site. The project helps in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and provides clean renewable power to the NEWNE regional grid.
The project activity consists of 63 nos. of Enercon make 0.8 MW WEGs totalling to a capacity of 50.4 MW. The WEG generates 3-phase power at 400V, which is stepped up to 33 KV.
These WEGs are based on gearless technology, which helps in eliminating mechanical losses. It also combines the variable speed with variable pitch and hence increases the conversion efficiency. This technology is well established and running successfully at various sites in India.
The project activity provides direct and indirect job opportunities to the local population during construction of the project as well as during operation stage. Employment generation
helps poverty alleviation in the local community and bring about reduction in the disparity of income.The infrastructure development for the purpose of the project activity benefits the local community. For instance, roads constructed for connecting the project sites are used by the villagers. The generation of electricity by the project activity improves availability of electricity to the state grid and also provides more opportunities for setting up of industries in the region.Communication facilities are improved substantially in the surrounding villages, which are located in remote areas.
