Greenko completes 15 MW wind farm in Mangalore

Greenko Group Plc (GKO), an Indian green-power developer backed by Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, completed a 15 MW wind farm in southern Karnataka state.

The 13 million-euro ($18 million) project in Mangalore will sell its output directly to a commercial customer in Bangalore under a 10-year contract, the Hyderabad-based developer said in a statement. It used 1.5-megawatt ReGen Powertech Pvt. wind turbines.

Greenko, now with a capacity of 561 megawatts, expects to reach 700 megawatts by mid-2014, according to the statement.
