Mytrah said it has struck an agreement with Guayama Holdings for it to invest up to $31million in its subsidiary to support the development of a 200MW wind energy project in India.
The company said the investment vehicle of GE Energy Financial Services will inject up to 49% of the capital of Mytrah Energy Private Limited.
Mytrah also revealed an additional 51.50MW has been commissioned at its Nazeerabad and Nipaniya projects.
A total of 31.50 MW was added to the Nazeerabad project while 20 MW was commissioned at the new Nipaniya project in Madhya Pradesh State.
