Mumbai-based National Aluminium Company (NalCo) is deploying a fleet of renewable energy projects to keep up with its demand for power. The firm has commissioned a 50 MW wind plant in Rajasthan and a 50.4 MW wind facility in Maharastra.

The company has targeted 55.62 Ha of land in Madhya Pradesh for a 20 MW solar power plant, and begun looking for a suitable site for another 50 MW wind project in India. In addition, Nalco has commissioned a 50 KW rooftop solar power plant at Nalco Research and Technology Centre in Bhubaneswar for a total cost of Rs 37.30 lakh.

NalCo continues to forge ahead with coal as well. It’s expanding its aluminum refinery in Odisha to add a fifth stream, for example, which will add a million tons per year to its current capacity of 2.275 MTPY at a cost of Rs 5,540 crore.
