Message of congratulations to the signatories of the agreement between the companies Engie and IGL with the State of Tamil Nadu
French company Engie is among the world leaders in the development of renewable energies. For several years now, they have engaged in a global strategy aiming at focusing on renewable energy, sustainable energy services and low-carbon solutions, leaving all their previous activities in coal and drastically reducing their activities in gas and petrol ;
In India, Engie has been developing renewable energy for more than 20 years and is currently exploiting or developing 1500 MW of solar and wind projects in the country. The Tuticorin project in Tamil Nadu is its biggest wind project with a total capacity of 250 MW. Engie has been developing this project for more than a year. 50 MW have already been commissioned in November 2019. 200 MW are still under construction
The current COVID-19 crisis has recalled the importance of the cooperation on health at a global scale. On this aspect, the cooperation between France and India has been exemplary, and I am very glad that small and medium enterprises, such as IGL, are also strongly contributing, here in Tamil Nadu, to deepening the ties between our two countries on these critical subjects.
