6MW/h BIOMASS POWER PLANT
6MW/h Biomass Power Plant
Clenergen will be constructing and operating a combustion steam biomass power plant in Tirunelveli, Tamilnadu. Tirunelveli is located approximately 5 miles from Tuticorin, one of the twelve major sea ports of India. A 10 acre site has been sub let for a 25 year period on an old spinning mill site and work will commence in November 2010 on the foundation infrastructure for the biomass power plant. Power evacuation will be via substation located within 18km from the power plant site.
Clenergen intends to set up commercial energy crop plantations in 2011, which will generate sufficient biomass feedstock supplies for the power plant to operate at maximum capacity. Surplus Biomass will be transported to other biomass power plants owned and operated by Clenergen in the State of Tamilnadu.
The power plant is scheduled to be commissioned in 2012. A detailed site plan for the construction of the plant will be submitted shortly to the appropriate governmental agencies. The State Government of Tamilnadu has agreed to a waiver of all import duties and the national government of India has approved a ten year income tax exemption status for all renewable energy projects.
