State-owned NTPC Ltd plans to again ask for bids to farm out a Rs 600 crore contract to set up a 100 MW wind power project as some firms who placed bids for an earlier tender failed to meet requirements and the utility also wanted greater participation.
Wind power firms Suzlon Energy Ltd and Vestas Wind Technology India Pvt. Ltd had shown interest in the earlier tender.
The firm has signed an agreement with the Asian Development Bank for generating 500 MW of renewable energy. In addition, NTPC also plans to spend Rs6,000 crore to set up two wind power projects of 500MW each in Karnataka and Maharashtra.
