The project will be used to supply power to the DISCOM under a power purchase agreement (PPA) for 25 years.According to the press statement, Tata Power’s renewable energy generating capacity will increase to 3,782 MW after the addition of this project. Of this, 2,637 MW capacity is currently operational, and the remaining 1,145 MW is under implementation, including 225 MW secured under this LoA.Last month, Tata Power had issued a request for selection (RfS) to produce power on a long-term basis for a 225 MW hybrid renewable power project. The minimum project size of a single hybrid power project was 25 MW of wind with at least 5 MW at one site for an intra-state project. The capacity for inter-state projects will be 50 MW at one location to be interconnected at a single delivery point.According to the tender document, the rated installed project capacity of either of the two components should be more than 25% of the other. Further, the wind component should be capped at a maximum of 50% of the project capacity.The project is required to be commissioned within 18 months from the date of execution of the PPA, the company added. Tata Power also said that the project is expected to generate 700 million units (MU) of energy every year, offsetting about 700 million kilograms of carbon dioxide emission into the atmosphere.More: Tata Power Green receives letter of award for a 225 MW solar-wind hybrid project Tata Power unit wins bid to build 225MW hybrid wind-solar project in India
… The man who led a juggernautTHAT mighty hitter and all-round cool dude Clive Lloyd was born on August 31, 1944. He bludgeoned 7 515 Test runs with that oversized bat of his, but will be remembered mainly as the man who restored West Indies to a position of dominance.Captain in 74 of his 110 Tests (the first West Indian to win 100 Test caps), he led them to a record 26 without defeat, which included a “blackwash” of England in 1984.In the one-day arena, he took West Indies to two World Cup titles (1975 & 1979) and to the final in 1983. His sparkling 102 in the 1975 final is one of the best innings in the tournament’s history.He joined the Packer circus in-between, before returning to captain West Indies. Before bad knees took their toll, he was also one of the great cover fielders.
