Gujarat To Get A 30 GW RE Park & 100 MLD Desalination Plant

India’s largest renewable energy (RE) generation park will come up in Gujarat with a generation capacity of 30 gigawatts (GW).

The foundation stone of Hybrid Renewable Energy Park near Vighakot village in Gujarat’s Kutch district will be laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow.

The Renewable Energy Park will be spread over 72,600 hectares, and have dedicated zones for wind and solar energy storage as well as an exclusive zone for wind park activities.

Harnessing its vast coastline, Gujarat is taking a significant step to transform seawater to potable drinking water with the upcoming desalination plant at Mandvi, Kutch.

The plant with capacity of 10 crore litre per day (100 MLD) will strengthen water security in the state by complementing the Narmada Grid, Sauni network and treated waste water infrastructure.

It is one of the five upcoming desalination plants in Gujarat — Dahej (100 MLD), Dwarka (70 MLD), Ghogha Bhavnagar (70 MLD), and Gir Somnath (30 MLD).

It will be an important milestone for sustainable and affordable water resource harvesting in the country.
