Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Kutch in Gujarat on Tuesday (15 December), where he will lay the foundation stone of several development projects including a de-salination plant, hybrid renewable energy park, and a fully automated milk processing and packaging plant, reports DD News.
PM Modi will lay the foundation stone of Hybrid Renewable Energy Park near Vighakot village at Kutch in Gujarat. It will be the country's largest renewable energy generation park and will lead to generation of 30 GW of clean energy.
Spread over 72,600 hectares of land, the park will have a dedicated hybrid park zone for wind and solar energy storage, as well as exclusive zone for wind park activities.
The Prime minister will also lay the foundation stone of desalination plant at Mandvi region of Kutch. This desalination plant will transform seawater to potable drinking water.
With a capacity of 10 crore litre per day capacity, it will strengthen water security in Gujarat by complementing Narmada Grid, Sauni network and treated waste water infrastructure.
It will be an important milestone for sustainable and affordable water resource harvesting in the country, according to a release.
Nearly 8 lakh people across the regions of Mundra, Lakhpat, Abdasa and Nakhatrana talukas will receive desalinated water from this plant, which will also help in sharing the surplus to upstream districts of Bhachau, Rapar and Gandhidham.
It is one of the five upcoming desalination plants in Gujarat besides those at Dahej, Dwarka, Ghogha Bhavnagar and Gir Somnath.
Prime Minister will also lay the foundation stone of a fully automated milk processing and packing plant at Sarhad Dairy Anjar, Kutch.
The plant will cost Rs 121 Crore and will have the capacity to process 2 Lakh Litres of milk per day.
