Danish-Indian study pinpoints 15 offshore wind energy zones

A Danish-Indian collaborative study, which aims to support India’s target of 30 GW of offshore wind energy by 2030, has identified fifteen zones for the first offshore wind development project.

The study was released by the Centre of Excellence for Offshore Wind and Renewable Energy, a joint initiative between the Danish Energy Agency and the Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).

“The joint projects on maritime spatial planning and port infrastructure have provided significant inputs for the draft tender document that is currently under stakeholder consultation as well as the upcoming tenders for offshore wind in India. The Danish approach and experience have been very helpful to advance this,” said Dinesh Jagdale, Joint Secretary, MNRE.

The projects identified in the study provide significant input to the ongoing stakeholder consultation on the draft tender document issued by MNRE for the first offshore wind parks in India.

A dedicated port infrastructure study identifies a set of ports off the Tamil Nadu and Gujarat coasts that fulfil basic navigation and access criteria to support the installation of wind turbines and foundations. However, these ports require significant upgrades in key infrastructure, such as quaysides and yards, which are necessary to marshal wind turbine components.
