Tata Power on Wednesday commissioned 24 Mega Watt (Mw) wind farm at Rojmal in Bhavnagar district through its subsidiary Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL), a company statement said. The total capacity of the project is 54 Mw.

This 24 Mw wind capacity is expected to generate around 52 million units of energy per year. With the commissioning of 24 MW wind energy, Tata Power now has a portfolio of 511 MW wind energy across the country.

"The clean energy project is well in line with our core business value of sustainable growth, and will further enhance and increase our clean energy footprint", said Anil Sardana, managing director and CEO of Tata Power.

Tata Power's total installed capacity, today, stands at 8,750 MW and the clean and renewable energy capacity at 1,383 MW.

TPREL's Rojmal wind farm utilises wind turbines from Inox Wind Ltd and sells the power to Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL) under the Gujarat Wind Policy of 2013. The company also has projects under development in Rajasthan and Maharashtra.

Sardana said, "This is one of the many key milestones in our endeavor to generate 20-25 percent of Tata Power's total generation capacity from clean energy sources."

The company has six of its renewable energy projects registered under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) programme of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
