UPL partners CleanMax on 61.05 MW wind-solar project for self-consumption


UPL, a global provider of sustainable agricultural solutions, has formed a joint venture with Mumbai-based renewable energy developer CleanMax Enviro Energy Solutions (CleanMax) to establish a hybrid solar-wind energy power plant in the Indian state of Gujarat.

“UPL and CleanMax will set up and operate a hybrid captive power plant with a capacity of 28.05 MW of solar power and 33 MW of wind power. This project will enable UPL to increase its renewable energy usage to 30% of its total global power consumption from 8% currently,” UPL stated.

This 61.05 MW captive wind-solar hybrid project is a part of a larger 400 MW wind-solar hybrid farm developed by CleanMax in Gujarat. The 400 MW wind-solar hybrid farm comprises 230 MW wind and 180 MW solar, leading to carbon abatement of 8.75 lakh tonnes of CO2 equivalent per annum.
