Tata Power Renewable Energy Ltd (TPREL), India's largest renewable energy company and Tata Power's wholly-owned subsidiary, today, announced the commissioning of its 100 MW wind farm project in Nimbagallu, Andhra Pradesh. The Company had commissioned 36 MW wind capacity of the plant in December 2016, and today announced the commissioning of the balance 64 MW. With this, the operating renewable portfolio of TPREL grows to 1959 MW, comprising 907 MW wind, 932 MW solar, and 120 MW waste heat recovery capacity as of today.

The Nimbagallu wind farm is built with Gamesa's 2MW state-of-the-art Wind-Turbine Generation(WTG) platform.

Speaking on this achievement, Mr. Rahul Shah, CEO & Executive Director, Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited, said, "The commissioning of the 100 MW wind power plant in Andhra Pradesh marks a significant milestone in our drive to grow our portfolio of clean and renewable energy generation. We are also developing another 100 MW solar plant at Anantapur Solar Park in Andhra Pradesh. With this commissioning, TPREL continues to fortify its position of being the largest renewable energy company in the country. We are extremely proud of this development and we continue to seek potential areas in India and in select International markets through organic and inorganic opportunities."

TPREL completed the acquisition of Welspun Renewables Energy Pvt. Ltd. last year to become the largest Renewable Energy Company in India. In 2016, TPREL has won 320 MW of solar bids, of which 15 MW was commissioned in February 2017, and the balance 305 MW will be commissioned in 2017-18. The company has organically added 159 MW wind & solar capacity in FY17.
