India will get electricity generated by wind-propelled plants in Gujarat and Tamil Nadu in about five years.

“ We are preparing India for offshore wind and providing MNRE a roadmap for offshore wind for Gujarat and Tamil Nadu,” said Mathias Steck, Executive Vice President and Regional Manager at DNVGL, an international renewable energy group.

A 100 MW pilot project will likely to be installed in ocean off Gujarat in about three years. It is to kickstart a new power generating sector under the Facilitating Offshore Wind in Industry(FOWIND) programme funded by European Union.
