NEW DELHI: State-owned aluminium maker Nalco has commissioned a part of its Rs 283 crore wind power project in Rajasthan, taking its total green energy capacity to 65 MW.

“The company has set up its second wind power plant at Ludarva in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, with a capacity of 47.6 MW. A part of the project has been commissioned. Power production has commenced from 18 wind energy generators,” an official statement said.

The Rs 283 crore project is being executed by Gamesa Wind Turbines and involves erection of 56 wind turbines, of 850 KW each.

As part of diversification plan, Nalco has been foraying into other metals and energy sectors. It had commissioned its first wind power plant of 50.4 MW capacity at a cost of Rs 274 crore in Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh last year.

The Rajasthan project, its second, is scheduled to be fully completed by August 2013.

The company is also planning to set up its third wind power plant in its own mined out area of Panchpatmali bauxite deposit at Koraput in Odisha, the statement said.
