Rajasthan set to attract huge investment in renewable energy

JAIPUR: Rajasthan is set to attract an investment of Rs 8,000 crore in renewable energy sector, with 14 companies proposing projects to tap power from wind and biomass.

Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation (RREC) Chairman and Managing Director Rajeev Swaroop said that the state government has signed memorandum of understanding (MoUs) with 14 power companies to set up power plants in the field of wind biomass energy.

According to sources, there would be five wind energy projects in Jaisalmer, Barmer and Jodhpur with a generation capacity of 1,600 MW while 8 biomass projects would be set up in Sirohi, Baran, Tonk, Alwar, Sawai Madhopur, Kota, Nagaur, Hanumangarh and J alore districts.

Rajasthan, at present, has an installed capacity of 490 MW in wind energy and 46.3 MW in biomass. With the commissioning of proposed projects, the installation capacity would increase to 2,150 MW in renewable energy sources.

“Suzlon Gujarat Wind Park Ltd, with a proposed investment of Rs 4,910 crore leads the table followed by Enercon (India) Ltd and Wish Wind Infrastructure Ltd with an investment of Rs 1,072 crore and Rs 888 crore respectively,'' a source said. These initi atives in wind electricity are the result of Wind Power Programme (WPP) which was started in the Sixth Plan in 1983-84. The WPP aims at survey and assessment of wind resources, setting up demonstration projects, and provisions of incentives to make wind electricity competitive.

Wind energy has been the world's fastest growing renewable energy source growing at a rate of 28 per cent in the last decade and has emerged as an option for grid quality power generation. – PTI

Binani lines up Rs 1,000-cr investment in cement, zinc

Additional Rs 300 cr in smelter in Rajasthan.

Mumbai, Dec. 29 The Binani Group has lined up Rs 1,300 crore investments in cement and zinc.

The company will sign up a commitment to invest Rs 1,000 crore at the ‘Vibrant Gujarat’ meet on January 12. It has earlier proposed to set up a 2-million tonne cement manufacturing plant, including jetty facility.

Mr Vinod Juneja, Managing Director, Binani Cement, said, “We have tied up Rs 450 crore through a consortium of six banks, including IDBI and Punjab National Bank. The company will chip in the rest for the cement project.”

“The company has acquired 25 acres required for the plant and is awaiting mining policy of the Gujarat Government to kick-start the project,” he added.

Another zinc unit

The company will also invest Rs 300 crore to set up a zinc smelter in Rajasthan in addition to its zinc unit at Kochi in Kerala.

RBG Minerals Industries Ltd, a joint venture company promoted by Rajasthan State Mines & Minerals (RSMML), Gujarat Mineral Development Corporation (GMDC) and Binani Zinc Ltd will jointly develop Ambaji Group of Mines comprising Ambaji, Deri and Basantgarh base metal mines such as copper, lead and zinc.

The mines were earlier explored separately and abandoned by RSMML and GMDC. RBG prepared a feasibility report to develop the mine jointly through Steffen Robertson and Kristen, US. The project is expected to commence from April 2009 after transfer of mining lease by GMDC and RSMM to RBG.

The upcoming smelter by Binani Zinc at Udaipur in Rajasthan will utilise the ore produced by RBG Minerals. Once the project goes on stream, the company will be able to double its capacity of 38,000 tonnes a year.

Justifying the decision to double zinc capacity, particularly when the prices of the metal are on a slide, Mr Juneja said, “The prices may be down currently, but we have a long-term vision. Moreover, prices will bounce back once the economy recovers.”

Zinc, which is used for galvanising steel, was in good demand. Although prices of the metal were influenced by the US economic slowdown and Chinese excess production, analysts expect the robust Indian demand to salvage prices in the near term.

Nimbri Lignite project

The Nimbari Chandawatan Lignite block at Nagaur district in Rajasthan, which was allotted to Binani Cement, is scheduled to produce 500 tonnes per day (tpd) of lignite by September 2009. It will be further enhanced to produce 1,000 tpd by September 2010. The company will set up a 54 MW power plant near the mining site.

The geological survey has predicted a reserve of 9.68 million tonnes of lignite sufficient to operate the power plant for 25 years.

“The power generation cost at pit head will be Rs 3 per kWh by September 2010. The power will be wheeled through the State grid, and will ensure consistent supply,” he said.

ITC plans spice sorting facility in Rajasthan

ITC plans to set up a modernised processing plant in Rajasthan for grading, sorting and cleaning of seed spices like cumin, coriander and pepper. The proposed integrated 'cleaning-cum-sorting' facility will enable ITC supply clean and graded seed spices procured from the mandis of Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh to both domestic and international customers. Investment for the project is being planned out.

The company is also thinking of setting up a pepper garbling and steam-washing facility in Kerala as well as a 'blended spices' facility in the next two years. The location for the blended spices facility is yet to be finalised. The total outlay on these facilities is expected to be around Rs.4-5 Crore.

Nagpur's loss is Bikaner's gain

great news for Rajasthan and specially the most underestimated city Bikaner.

Quote:
NAGPUR: Vavasi Group which had proposed a 7 billion Euros (approx Rs 50,000 crore) investment for setting up a polysilicon manufacturing industry in Mihan-SEZ has finally bid good-bye to Nagpur.

Company’s chief executive officer Farid Arifuddin, who was in the city on Monday announced that Vavasi has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Rajasthan government which has offered 400 hectares of land in industrially backward Bikaner district for the project.

TOI broke the news in its Saturday edition that Vavasi was offered the land in the desert district and the talks were in advanced stage. A day later the MoU was signed in the presence of chief minister Ashok Gehlot and top brass of the state.

Arifuddin was in city to meet Union minister for new and renewable energy Vilas Muttemwar. “I came here to apprise the minister of the latest situation. Since polysilicon has a great role as future source of non-conventional energy, Muttemwar has supported us all through. He had insisted that the project be set up in Nagpur because of its potential of generating 80,000 direct and indirect jobs,” said Arifuddin.

“We were also keen on Mihan-SEZ because of its location and linkages that would be developed soon. But the courtship had to stop somewhere as the alliance did not materialise,” remarked Arifuddin lamenting that the state had failed to firm up its land and other offers in a set time frame.

The Vavasi honcho acknowledged that Muttemwar had greatly contributed in getting the silicon technology for India from Germany on the initiative of former President APJ Abdul Kalam. This has enabled Vavasi to be third company globally to own the technology. Presently the silicon industry is a close-knit club of 11 members with an annual production of 37,000 metric tonnes. Silicon is the soul of all electronics.

“Latest projections show India’s silicon imports bill by 2020 would equal that of fossil fuel (petroleum) imports. To meet the country’s requirements, Vavasi wanted to harness the latest technology and set up world’s largest integrated silicon unit here,” said Arifuddin. But with no response coming from Maharashtra government, Vavasi has made up its mind to locate the project in Rajasthan.

The Vidarbha Industries Association and Vidarbha Economic Development Council, upset at the loss of such a major investment opportunity in the farmer-suicide affected Vidarbha, has sought a week’s time to take up the matter with chief minister Ashok Chavan to see if a matching land and incentives offer could be extended to Vavasi.

Meanwhile, Arifuddin called on Rajya Sabha member Vijay Darda and conveyed him his group’s decision to shift the project to Bikaner. Surprised by the sudden development, Darda appealed to Arifuddin not to shift the project from Nagpur. Appealing Arifuddin to reconsider his decision Darda assured him all help and cooperation if he sets up the project in Nagpur.

mega infrastructure project worth $90 billion. A task force has been constituted for this which will submit its report in three months.

Speaking at 36th annual export awards of Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council at Birla Auditorium in Jaipur, Union minister for commerce Anand Sharma said that out of nine states covered under the corridor, Rajasthan would be benefited most as around 39% of the project would be in the state.

He also said that the gems and jewellery sector is one of the highest contributors to the exchequer, accounting for 13.63% of total merchandise exports. He also said that the ministry would support (GJEPC) in all its endeavours.

Earlier during the ceremony, Mavji Patel of Kiran was awarded first prize in the cut and polished diamonds category, Govindbhai Kakadia and Vasantbhai Gajera stood second and third. Colin P Shah was first in Studded Gold Jewellery, Rahim Ullah was first in cut and polished coloured gem stones, Sudhir Kasliwal was first in sales to foreign tourists.

Chief minister Ashok Gehlot said that gem and jewellery industry not only offered jobs to lakhs of people but also brought international fame for Jaipur. Pink City is known as gem and jewellery cluster with 90% of the cutting being done here, he said and added that the state government was planning to provide land for the industry, which has been a long-pending demand.

Chairman of GEJPC, Vasant Mehta said the awards were a recognition of the efforts made by the exporters for excellence. "With the total exports worth $21,233 million in financial year 2008-09, the contribution of gem and jewellery industry to the Indian economy is undeniable," he added.

Varun Inds plans to set up Rs 230-cr steel unit in Jodhpur



Dibyajyoti Chatterjee MUMBAI



VARUNIndustries, maker of steel consumer goods, plans to build a 120,000-tonne stainless steel plant at a cost of Rs 230 crore in Jodhpur as part of its backward integration programme. Mumbai-based Varun, which is one of the largest stainless steel utensils maker, also with interests in mining, expects to begin work on the proposed plant after a financial closure scheduled by March. “It’s expected to be operational from 2011,” group advisor Rathnakar Hegde told ET.

The manufacturing plant is aimed at securing the raw material for products that the company makes and also to counter the volatility in prices. Prices of steel have been seeing strong fluctuations, almost doubling before the liquidity crisis took the bottom out. “Too much fluctuation in raw material prices eats into our profitability. At the same time, the quality and supply were a concern,” said Mr Hegde. The company spent Rs 85 crore last year on raw materials.

Under its backward integration plan, Varun Industries will manufacture TMT bars and other steel inputs for the construction industry, besides stainless steel flats. “We want to be a complete steel company and this new plant will help us diversify into other verticals and mitigate risks,” said Mr Hegde. The company’s sales were down 6% at Rs 302.4 crore in the quarter ended September.

Varun Industries plans to borrow Rs 150 crore to meet the expansion plans. The company’s average borrowing cost is 11%. Further, the promoters will infuse about Rs 22 crore through warrants which can be converted into equity shares subsequently, said Mr Hegde. “Rest of the amount will be met by internal accruals and through a QIP or a rights issue,” he added.

Israeli technology companies to make Indian desert bloom for farmers

The desert of Rajasthan in the north of India is to be planted with a million olive trees grown in Israel in an effort to transform the landscape and the fortunes of its struggling farmers.

The countries are finalising a three-year plan on agriculture that will introduce several crops associated with the Middle East and Mediterranean to India. It is hoped that the sub-continent — more famous today for its mangoes and spices — will become an exporter of olive oil by 2011.

Lior Weintrub, a spokesman for the Israeli Embassy in Delhi, said: “The symbolism is significant: an olive tree in the Middle East ... well, it means a lot.”

Diplomacy has also paved the way for dates and grapes from Israel to be grown in Maharashtra, a state in western India that has been blighted by tens of thousands of suicides among desperate smallholders in recent years.

India's farmers struggle to keep food on table
Israeli technology companies will be drafted in to lend their expertise on matters such as water recycling and irrigation. In their home country, Israeli scientists have been credited with “greening” the Negev desert, performing what has been termed an agricultural miracle.

Indian olive oil is likely to find a ready market in the West as there is a global shortage of the product amid rising demand.

It is also hoped that the adoption of new crops and farming techniques can be a stepping stone towards a second green revolution in India — the first being the period in the 1960s and 1970s when the introduction of modern methods and new plant varieties radically boosted yields and eradicated famine.

Productivity growth in India's fields has since slowed to a crawl. In February the Government's official annual economic survey said that the farming sector, on which 70 per cent of the country's population depends for a living, was expected to grow 2.6 per cent this year, down from 3.8 per cent last year.

The report's authors gave warning of potentially dire consequences. “Due to uncertainties in global markets and hardening of international prices of food ... the food security of India critically depends on the farm sector,” they said.

Economists estimate that India's ability to increase harvests of staple foods such as grains, rice and pulses now runs at less than 1 per cent a year, lagging behind the 1.5 per cent population growth.

Dinker Panandikar, of the RPG Foundation, an economic think-tank, said: “It is touch and go whether India feeds itself.” Across India as many as 150,000 farmers have committed suicide in the past decade after falling behind in payments to money lenders, according to the Tata Institute of Social Sciences.

The Government took radical action this year when it waived £7.5 billion in debt owed by struggling farmers, as part of the annual budget.
