Tata Power’s 50:50 JV with Exxaro Resources in South Africa, namely Cennergi (Pty) achieved commercial operations for its 134 MW Amakhala Emoyeni Wind Farm Project on Thursday.
Cennergi was selected as the preferred bidder for two wind projects under the second window of the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme by the South African government. The statement said that Cennergi’s second wind project is expected to go into commercial operations shortly.
“Tata Power has been pursuing growth opportunities in India and overseas.
