The Project Inception Report has set out the prerequisites for understanding the baseline scenario of Offshore wind sector in India.

DNV GL is working on assessing the wind potential of the states of Gujarat and Tamil Nadu.

The consortium partners undertook a detailed review of existing studies to identify knowledge gap and steer the project actions in the right direction to reduce technical barriers and financial risks.

Partners have initiated the pre-feasibility study and constraint analysis on wind resource, financial, technical, environmental and regulatory aspects to ascertain the zones for offshore project development in Gujarat and Tamil Nadu.

MNRE issued a formal support letter to FOWIND on 09 May 2014.

The consortium has collaborated with Gujarat Power Corporation Ltd. (GPCL) thereby ensuring support from the state government of Gujarat for executing the project actions and promoting state buy-in for project outcomes.
