Kandla, Gujarat: Public sector refiner Indian Oil Corp (IOC) has completed its 21 MW wind power project near the port town of Kandla, a top official said today.
The wind farm, set up at a cost of Rs.130 crore, would be formally inaugurated later this week, the IOC official, who did not want to be named, said.
The power generated in the wind farm would be used for captive consumption to operate the equipment installed at IOC's fuel storages at the Kandla port.
A trial run of turbines has already been started at the wind farm, he said.
The project operation and maintenance contract has been awarded to renewable energy major Suzlon Energy.
On Tuesday, gas marketing Major Gail India had said it was also planning to set up a series of wind farms in Gujarat. (IANS)
