French multinational energy company ENGIE has partnered with French infrastructure and power equity investor, STOA, to set up a platform for wind projects in India.

The project, set up by a 50:50 joint venture between the two businesses, will involve both onshore and offshore wind and will have a total capacity of 2GW within the next five years.

This deal follows on from wind projects already secured by ENGIE in the country worth a total of 280MW: two projects in Tamil Nadu and one in Guiarat.
