India’s edible oils-to-infrastructure and energy conglomerate Adani Group is looking at constructing a utility-size solar power project in Australia’s Queensland province, where green litigations and delay in mining lease have pushed back the timetable for its $16.5-billion composite project for developing the Carmichael coal mine, an associated railway line and port.
“We have applied for a licence (to set up a large solar project) but it would be too premature to comment on anything more,” Jayant Parimal, chief executive of the group’s renewable energy business, told TOI here.Parimal is in Australia as part of a CII business delegation accompanying power, coal and renewable energy minister Piyush Goyal who is on a four-day visit to seek collaborations and investments in coal mining technology, liquid gas trade and skill development.
