Wind Power Generation is one of the fastest growing energy generation mechanisms in the world today. Sri Lanka's best natural resource after hydro power is wind, because of the Monsoon winds across the country. This is certified by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) wind study and published Wind Atlas for Sri Lanka which estimated over 20,000 MWs of wind potential.

Vidatamunai Wind Power (Pvt.) Ltd and Seguwantivu Wind Power (Pvt.) Ltd. are ventures that are promoting green energy and supplying electricity to the National Grid. The plants are located in the Mullipuram area in the Puttalam district. This is to-date the largest wind power plant in Sri Lanka, and is a pioneering venture that is promoting green energy and supplying electricity to the National Grid.

Vidatamunai Wind Power (Pvt.) Ltd and Seguwantivu Wind Power (Pvt.) Ltd. have made an investment of over US $ 55 million, with Akbar Brothers, Hirdaramani Group and Debug Group being the promoters of the venture.

The companies have installed a total of 25 wind turbine generators bought from Gamesa of Spain, giving an installed capacity of 20MW. The development of the plant was done within a record 10 months, whilst adhering to the most stringent requirements. The plant is estimated to generate 52 Giga Watt-hours of energy per annum, and has been commissioned and operating since July 2010.

The quantum of renewable energy thus produced, compared to generating the equivalent energy from thermal power, will cut down about 40,000 MT p.a. of carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere; save about Rs. 876 million per annum at sweet diesel at Rs. 73/liter; and reduce the diesel imports by 10,000 MT saving US$ 7.3 million per annum. The project epitomizes the benefits the country can receive by means of such private – public partnership development ventures.

In addition to the benefits that the country would receive from reduced dependency on fossil fuels, the community has benefited from the extensive improvements made by the developers to the roads, the grid infrastructure, and community services to the residents of the area.

The Group is currently developing 2 more plants, namely Nirmalapura Wind Power (Pvt.) Ltd and Daily Life Renewable Energy (Pvt) Ltd. which will contribute a further 20 MW.

Nirmalapura Wind Power (Pvt) Ltd is currently building a wind power farm on the Western coast of Sri Lanka. The 10 MW wind power plant is being built at Nirmalapura at Kalpitiya in the Puttalam district to augment Sri Lanka’s existing green energy power plants.

The farm of wind turbine generators will have seven turbines when completed with each turbine producing 1.5 MW of power, producing electricity utilizing the strong gusts of winds from the Indian Ocean. Daily Life Renewable Energy (Pvt) Ltd. is building a wind power farm on the Western coast of Sri Lanka. The 10 MW wind power plant is being built at Noroccholai in the Puttalam district.
