Power | Wind Power | Product / Project Solution Launch

The Union Shipping Ministry plans to develop a 500 MW offshore wind terminal at VOC Port, Thoothukudi, costing Rs 450 crore in phase-1. Initially estimated at Rs 965 crore, a cost analysis revealed the reduced figure. Tender to be floated after elections, aiming to tap into Tamil Nadu's offshore wind potential.


Good to see this development after the government had given priority earlier to three ports for GH2 - Kandla, Paradip and Tuticorin ports - because, there are significant synergies between wind power and green hydrogen!
