ReGen enters solar power with hybrid solution
Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu): Wind turbine maker ReGen Powertech ventures into solar power business offering an hybrid solution as well as an engineering-procurement-construction (EPC) contractor, a top company official said on Saturday.
The Rs.2,400 crore turnover company will be investing around Rs.205 crore capex this year and hoping to tap the overseas markets for its 2.8 MW wind turbine.
The prototype of the 2.8 MW – largest windmill in India – is being test now and certification is expected in October 2015.
“We have set up 200 kw solar power project connected to our own 1.5MW wind turbine located near here. It is an example of true wind-solar hybrid project sharing common infrastructure while generating power separately,” Madhusudan Khemka, managing director told IANS here.
