Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid foundation stone for three ambitious projects in Kutch, Gujarat. Projects include world’s biggest renewable energy park, sea water desalination plant and milk processing dairy plant.
AIR correspondent reports, the Hybrid Renewable Energy Park project is one of its kind and world class, green energy project situated beyond India bridge from Khavda village to Vighakot.
It will produce 30 Giga watt solar and wind energy on a vast expanse of wasteland.
The area is controlled by the BSF and the Indian Army and civilian access is not allowed.
Green energy generating corporates from private and public sector are being given land allotment to establish solar photovoltaic panels and wind mills.
Power Grid Corporation of India would be the nodal agency to channelize electricity generated here in to power grid.
The desalination plant at Gundiyali village near Mandvi in Kutch, will convert sea water for potable purposes for nearly 8 lakh people of 300 villages.
