According to reports, Kolkata-based RP-Sanjiv Goenka group flagship CESC Ltd plans to complete commissioning of 50 MW wind power at Jaisalmer in Rajasthan in the next six months.
According to group Chairman Sanjiv Goenka, the project is estimated to cost Rs 200-300 crore. The group’s proposed 146 MW hydro-electric foray is still in the preparatory stage.
On the thermal power sector, he said that commissioning of the two thermal power stations of 600 MW each at Chandrapur in Maharashtra and Haldia in West Bengal were progressing on schedule.
While the first 300 MW unit at Chandrapur is expected to be commissioned by next year-end, the group is yet to enter power supply/purchase agreements for the same, as the State utilities country wide are delaying case-I tariff bidding.
