Sterlite Power eyes India’s first offshore wind farm project

Sterlite Power, which is keen on building the undersea cables that will transmit electricity from India’s first offshore wind farm, off the Gujarat coast, to the national grid, is looking to partner with foreign wind developers to jointly bid for the 1GW project, according to two people close to the development.

The project will be partly funded by the European Union with the support of the ministry of new and renewable energy and the National Institute of Wind Energy.
