Chennai Green Energy Projects & Developments

Hi friends,

As Chennai and in general, Tamil Nadu is poised to become the green energy hub of India, I thought we can have a separate thread for it. You can post solar/wind/etc. related projects here.

Further down this page, wlbkng has a list of companies doing business in Chennai/TN.

Thanks.

Vestas Opens New R&D Test Centre in Chennai

http://www.windpowermonthly.com/news...-centre-India/

Vestas has opened a research and development test centre for wind turbine components in Chennai, India.

The centre will be adjacent to Vestas’ existing R&D office that opened in 2008 and which is also being expanded.

Vestas technology and R&D vice president of test, verification and quality Servet Sert said the centre would be involved in the verification of components.

In October, Vestas became the first overseas wind manufacturer to open an R&D facility in China.

It continues Vestas’ development in India, one of the world’s fastest growing wind turbines markets, and a key wind power market for Vestas.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vestas has expanded its Technology R&D capabilities in India with the opening of a state-of-the-art test centre for wind turbines components in Chennai to further ensure the reliability of Vestas products.

The test centre is located at Rajiv Gandhi Salai, adjacent to the existing Technology R&D office that opened in 2008. It continues Vestas’ development in India, one of the world’s fastest growing wind energy markets, and a key wind power market for Vestas.

“The new Test Center will play an important role for Vestas. This new facility adds to our global testing and verification of wind turbine components to further improve their reliability and performance,” says Servet Sert, Vice President of Test, Verification and Quality for Vestas Technology R&D.

Commenting on the Vestas Technology R&D operations in India, Michael H°gedal, Managing Director, Vestas Technology R&D Chennai, says: “Vestas Technology R&D is continuing to invest in the huge pool of engineering talent available in Chennai. Together with our technology centre, this test centre forms a crucial part in ensuring Vestas continuing its role as a world-class supplier of wind energy solutions.”

The test centre will generate more “green jobs” locally in Chennai, where employees research on competitive answers to combat CO2 emissions and rapidly growing huge energy needs of India. In addition to the opening of the test centre, Vestas Technology R&D is also expanding its existing office space at Chennai by an additional 35,000 square feet.

A pioneer of 30 years in wind energy, with the world's largest R&D centre, real-time monitoring of thousands of turbines and over 20,000 people worldwide focusing solely on wind, Vestas strives to bring wind on par with oil and gas. Vestas is the leading producer of high technological wind power solutions and has installed over 43,000 wind turbines in 66 countries on 6 continents. Vestas' core business comprises the development, manufacture, sale and maintenance of wind technology that uses the energy of the wind to generate electricity. The company has a talent pool of more than 20,000 people worldwide which works towards one pure goal: generating the greatest and most sustainable return on wind for its customers.

Vestas Wind Technology India Private Limited is a 100% subsidiary of Vestas Wind Systems A/S Denmark, the global leader in wind energy. In India, Vestas has been present for over a decade and has an installed capacity of over 2400 MW. Vestas competencies cover the entire value chain from site studies to construction and commissioning, developing the infrastructure (road, power evacuation, substations, etc.), liaisoning with government agencies and turbine monitoring with Lifetime comprehensive Operation and Maintenance Services. Vestas has installed turbines in wind rich states like Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Gujarat, Kerala and Rajasthan. Vestas has world class manufacturing facilities in Chennai and Puducherry.

Established in August 2007, Vestas Technology R&D in Chennai is the largest Technology R&D centre for wind energy in India and it employs over 300 specialists in Chennai who carry out cutting edge R&D into all aspects of wind turbine engineering and design.

Yes, right now TN and GJ are leading green energy generators in the country.

I reckon that offshore wind energy is another area where a lot of potential is there for generating electricity. Is there any offshore wind farms in TN or even in India?

TVH launches Green Building Conclave. His holiness Sadguru Jaggi vasudev presided over the function at Park Sheraton. It is to be noted Project Green hands has planted 25 Million trees so far and has acheived 80% progress in maintaining them. Plan to acheive 33% green cover in Tamilnadu in another 5 years time.

I think that post is a bit irrelevant. Do not confuse Green energy with green cover! This is mainly to deal with Wind/Solar/Biomass and allied 'energy producing' projects only!!

Cool

Great going TN More n more industries , RnD centres and Power project is all we need now ...
Now that we are in a good position in Green energy sector .. and we are still growing strongly ... I wonder why dont TN

govt. setup a Solar Thermal Power plant in the state .. It will be a nice way of welcoming more investments and also

help us in start depending on more renewable energy resources for our needs .. win-win solution

like this ...



Though Solar film technology is good , they shouldn't ignore Solar thermal energy production as they are much more efficient than PV cells in capturing the energy ...

The difference between TN and most other states is that in TN, its cheaper/almost equal to produce electricity through green energy than the normal way; also because of many windy areas and solar density in the state that facilitate it. So that is why its natural that green energy is being promoted.

TNEB will soon introduce net metering which will enable residents generate electricity with roof top solar units. The power can be used for the household, otherwise it will be fed into the grid. Residents will be charged only for the consumed power.

hmm...only green energy projects specific to chennai are posted here, like r and d centre, equipment production plants etc. TN thread is for solar/wind power plants and its implementation, etc.

Thats not true. TN does not have any special advantages when it comes to natural endowment. Sure it has a few passes where the wind is "funneled" but those kind of areas are present in other states too. As far as solar resource is concerned, Gujarat and Rajasthan are far more endowed than TN. Check out the solar insolation map from wikipedia. It is safe to say we are one of the better performing state rather than saying we are better endowed.

erm...what i meant was that tn gets good amount of solar/wind exposure, not the highest. A state that has highest solar density doesn't mean its cheaper to produce solar energy there (in relative terms), In TN its cheap.

In simple words, TN is a veeeeery veeeery power deficient state, that is why green energy is cheaper than buying power.

Why do you say so? AFAIK, Solar insolation and no of hours of clear sun are the most important factors for determining cost of electricity (assuming solar cell efficiency and cost of production are same). In that aspects no way TN can compete on cost basis with the vast deserts of Rj and Rann of Kutch. Those are a order of magnitude better than TN. Infact TN is comparable to MH. Just wait and see in 3 -5 years. Gj and Rj will be racing ahead in the solar capacity.

Again wrong Merchant power costs between 3 to 6 rupees whereas solar power costs 15 to 18 rupees. But sooner or later, it will cross over.

true, prices have not yet reached that level....that is why tn government is pushing up demand, so it will be cheap in future.

Rajasthan needs kutti energy, Gujarat needs energy and TN vary vary much needs energy.

As for wind energy, its already cheaper for industrial units.

How to calculate solar power costs?
